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!

  • 12 cup chopped green onion (green & white parts)

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.

Incredibly easy, I had everything on hand and this took minutes to put together. I used balsamic vinegar because I am not a 'dressing' lover, I added 'to taste', probably a bit less than 1/2 a cup. Fresh and crunchy, bursting with flavour, we enjoyed this with our supper, and I made the full amount so that I'd able to take it to the office for lunch! This is something that I will be making regularly for my lunches, its marvellous! Thanks, JB! Made for Vegetarian Swap#8, March 09

Yummy salad! DH loves pea and nut salads with mayo, so this was a nice healthier change, and he still loved it! I used a white balsamic vinegar instead of the vinaigrette. So good! Thanks January Bride!
