Notes

Leftovers & Storage: Salad with keep well in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, however adding mixed greens to other ingredients right before eating will keep them from wilting. Cashew dressing will be good for up to five days, possibly more.

Cashew dressing started to thicken when refrigerated, if it’s too thick then add a bit more water or oil and either stir or blend before serving.
