Loved this salad with all the different flavors and textures. Did use kale and romaine for the lettuce. I will leave the cashews out until serving instead of chilling to keep the crunch.

I really like this salad, especially with the cashew pieces - they give it a lovely crunch. It's very colourful and full of flavour.

This is a very pretty salad! The colors are just wonderful. I used a mixture of green and red seedless grapes in this recipe along with the other listed fruits. The ingredient list has ½ cup purple onions listed twice. (?) I only used ½ cup. Next time I wouldn’t cook the onions for this salad as I think I would prefer them raw. I also will probably add a slightly stonger vinegarette just as a matter of personal preference. But again, I can’t say enough good things about this salads striking visual appeal
