I’m beyond excited for grilling season to be here! It’s the BEST time of the year and this is the time of the year when I start craving fresh fruits and vegetables like crazy! Cashew Salad is perfect served with any grilled meat, at barbecues, potlucks, or right along with most weeknight dinners!
2 c. cauliflower florets
2 c. frozen peas, thawed
⅛ c. sliced green onions (more to taste)
¼ c. diced Swiss cheese (optional)
3 T. dry ranch dressing and dip seasoning
½ t. dried dill weed
½ c. plain Greek yogurt
¼ c. sour cream (low fat if desired)
salt and pepper to taste
½ c. cashews
In a small mixing bowl mix together yogurt, sour cream, ranch seasoning, dill, salt and pepper. Thin with a little milk if it looks to thick. You want it a little thinner than the consistency of sour cream.
Add peas, cauliflower, onions and cheese (if desired) to a large mixing bowl. Toss.
Pour yogurt mixture over veggies and toss to coat. Adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.
Cover and chill for an hour.
Just before serving sprinkle with cashews. May toss the cashew in with the veggies if desired.
