Top Review by Susie D

This was a very colorful fresh salad, which I liked about it. I did add a little shredded purple cabbage to the mix. There was just enough dressing to toss into the salad, this is not a pour on dressing. I liked the crisp flavor the dressing added and it worked really well with the spinach, chicken, cashews, and fruit. I did use lots of fresh cracked black pepper. I could also see adding a hard-boiled egg to this one. I served this alongside a cup of soup for lunch. Thanks Chef!!!
