Cashew Pea Salad

"A crisp pea salad that has a tangy dressing. Looks really pretty when lined with lettuce leaves and garnished with tomato slices. Cook time is actually the chill time for the dressing."

  1. A beautiful and delicious salad! The flavors blend very nicely. I originally thought it needed more zing, but then I found out my father-in-law forgot the mustard! This salad looks very elegant served on the lettuce leaf with 3 grape tomatoes and the cashews and bacon sprinkled on top instead of in the dressing. We'll make this one again (with the mustard!). Thanks!
