A delicious salad that goes with any type of celebration. I received this recipe from my mom, and its a favorite at our family gatherings. The addition of the Craisins adds a nice sweetness to this salad. It makes plenty, so if serving for a small family, you may want to half the recipe.

I love cashews, I love craisins, and I knew I would love this salad--I was right! :) I did scale the recipe down and used Emmenthal for the Swiss. This was another great choice for the Pick a Chef game--thanks for sharing the recipe!
