An Iris Inn Cashew Salad Recipe

As the weather warms up, our eating preferences may become a bit lighter than the heavy soups and hot meals we enjoy during the winter season. Some days, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as a crisp, crunchy salad for lunch or as the first course of your dinner. Here at the Iris Inn, we also enjoy a good salad, and if you’d like to have a taste of one of our favorite salad recipes, then keep reading. Cook time: 20 minutes Servings: 4 Ingredients:
