This is so versatile that you can add/omit as desired. Use almonds or any other type nut instead of cashews, and get a low-cal poppyseed dressing to lower the fat content.

My grocery store didn't carrie broccoli coleslaw, so I made this salad with regular coleslaw and it was very good. I also kept the pineapple juice, and threw in a cup of chick peas. Loved it!

WHAT A GREAT SALAD! Made this one as posted, but did cut the slices of red pepper in half! We really enjoyed the cashews in this salad & actually included almost half a cup of them! Thanks for sharing a great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Zaar Stars Tag Game]

This was very good. I used fresh pineapple and smoked chicken, otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I would change is to chop the red bell peppers up instead of slicing. It would make it easier to eat. I'd also let the salad sit in the dressing for a few minutes before eating to enhance the flavor. Thanks for posint! Made for Zaar 123 Tag!
