Excellent salad mersaydees!! I cut the recipe in half, and did eat the 2 servings by myself. I love the cashews in this as well. It made for wonderful light lunch for me, and a recipe I will certainly make again. Thanks for sharing!!

We really enjoyed this quick and easy salad. I liked the fact that there was no cooking required, so it's easy to put together in a hurry. I used light sour cream in the dressing, and added a pinch of sugar and some garlic powder as well. Also, I used the fresh dill which added a nice, subtle flavor. Thank you for sharing this yummy salad! *Made for 8th Annual Photo Swap*
