Spinach-Cashew-Raisin Salad

Spinach-Cashew-Raisin Salad (Page 46) is a very healthy and tasty salad. It's not sweet, which is a refreshing characteristic in a salad with dried fruit. It's also great when you've got a Costco-sized bag of spinach. Buying that bag is a like accepting a man v. food challenge. There's no way one person living alone can eat 2.5 pounds before it goes bad. It's not over yet, but this salad (and quiche, sandwiches, and vegetable dish) help me towards that end.

I'm getting the hang of roasting nuts. Ten minutes at 350!

This salad is good. Cashews are so rich and creamy and roasting them draws out their flavor. I bought a cup of raw cashews in bulk at Freddy's. Remember to slice the red onion thin so it's edible. It also would be nice pickled a while in a bit of the same red vinegar that you use in the vinaigrette. That Fiddlehead vinaigrette is a nice thing to have on hand. And quick to make with things you always have in your cupboard. Enjoy!
