Balsamic Cashew Pea Salad

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by jenne

This is perfect to take to a picnic during the summer months because it has NO MAYO!!! It is light, sweet and crunchy. I got the recipe at Trader Joe's this morning. Feel free to substitute out balsamic vinegar instead of the vinaigrette. . .we like it that way too!

Top Review by Wish I Could Cook

Who could believe that something so simple and fast could be so good?! It took me all of 4 minutes to make and I loved it. I missed the "vinaigrette" part of the recipe, so like several of the other reviewers, I just used white balsamic vinegar. I made it the night before and the cashews were soft (in a good way). But if you want them crunchy, add them just before serving.
