  • 3 whole Cucumbers Peeled And Sliced
  • 1 can (about 10 Oz.) Whole Cashews, Lightly Toasted In Skillet

FOR THE DRESSING:

  • 1 whole Lime, Juiced
  • 8 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 8 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons (up To 3 Tablespoons) Sesame Oil
  • ⅓ cups Brown Sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Ginger Chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Chopped
  • 2 whole Hot Peppers Or Jalapenos, Seeded and Chopped
  • Chopped Cilantro

Mix salad ingredients together. Whisk dressing ingredients together and pour over salad. Mix with tongs or hands and serve on a platter.

Note: dressing keeps for up to three days before serving, without cilantro.

  Now be warned, this says it serves SIX.  I think it could serve SIXTEEN! It made 2 HUGE bowls full.  Either plan to serve a crowd or half this baby.  I do not care for it leftover as the spinach gets soggy.

Dig in!
