A recipe I found on About.com for Thai recipes that I am posting for ZWT. Here is what is stated about the salad: "his Thai cashew salad recipe is incredibly scrumptious - but you won't believe just how scrumptious until you try it for yourself! Whole cashews are combined with cucumber, carrot, red pepper and Thai herbs. This healthy combination is tossed in a very easy and fat free Thai dressing. Cashew salad can be made in just 15 minutes, but tastes truly gourmet! A great salad recipe to accompany any meal, but especially other Thai food favorites. Note that this salad can also be served as a main course - just add slices of deep-fried tofu (if you're vegetarian), or some cooked shrimp. Enjoy!"

This salad has a huge appeal to me with the nuts and herbs and oriental dressing. I thought the dressing would have been enough for maybe only one serving, so I tripled it. Not too much of it, at all, it's so yummy!

Directions

  1. First make the dressing by mixing all salad dressing ingredients together in the bowl.
  2. Taste-test for sourness/spiciness, adding more sugar if it's too sour for your taste, or more chili if it's not spicy enough. Set aside.
  3. Slice the cucumber, then cut the slices in half. Place in a salad bowl.
  4. Add the grated carrot, cashews, red pepper, and spring onions.
  5. Pour the dressing over and toss well.
  6. Place salad on a mixed bed of fresh coriander and fresh basil, and serve immediately. Enjoy!
