Mandarin-Cashew Tossed Salad

Mandarin oranges and chopped red onion add a touch of color to mixed greens and sweet roasted cashews in this refreshing salad. You're sure to be handing out the recipe once friends and family get a taste of the tangy honey dressing. —Sheri Shaffer Northfield, Ohio

    This was so delicious! I added a bit of lime juice to thin the dressing and add some tartness. My guests loved it.

    Excellent salad! The only thing I changed was add 2 Tbsp white wine vinegar to the dressing because it was abit too sweet for my taste.
