Green salad with cashew nuts and lemon dressing

2 comments Jan 18th, 2011 | By | Category: Recipes, Salads and Dressings

Maybe this is less a recipe than a call for the use of nuts when preparing salads. Like in this case where I used cashew nuts, which I had toasted in a pan for a few minutes. Toasting them helps to develop their flavors. Also the salad gets a bit of a crunch.

Preparation: 10 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • 1/2 green salad
  • 1 hand full of Cashew nuts
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 ts of mustard
  • 1 ts of honey
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Wash and spin the salad. Then cut or rip it, however you prefer. Put into a bowl.

Meanwhile toast the nuts in a pan for a few minutes. Toss them regularly.

For the salad dressing add the lemon juice, mustard, salt, pepper, honey to a little bowl and mix well. Once the ingredients have dissolved add the oil and mix once more.

Chop up the nuts and sprinkle them over the salad. Pour the dressing over it and serve.

  1. love a simple salad (and that Greek salt!)

  2. A refreshing salad that highlights simple flavours. It is nice to see the ingredients not masked in a heavy dressing.
