"This salad is excellent. It is a family favorite. I use shredded parmesan cheese (not grated) and add craisins and thin-sliced red onion. The dressing really enhances the salad."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 8, 2012

"Hands down the most popular salad requested to make!! The dressing makes this salad- we nicknamed this "Jeff's salad" because my brother literally could drink the dressing, its so yummy. Easy to make, i like the offsetting of cheese and cashews with the tangy dressing."
