Strawberries take the spotlight in this quick and easy salad. They are paired with a simple mixture of spinach and romaine and topped with a creamy cashew dressing.

This is one of our favorite ETL salads!
I didn't have much luck trying to use raw cashews and found that the raw cashew butter worked better in my K-Tec blender. There also wasn't enough bulk for my blender to work well, so I double the raw cashew butter, the soy milk, and the applesauce and have enough dressing for two nights.

One of our all-time favorite salads. The cashew-currant dressing is especially great.

This tasted like "strawberry ice cream" salad! The dressing turned out great in my Vita-Mix.

I like to pour the strawberry juice in with the dressing ingredients so that the strawberry flavor gets into the dressing. This makes the dressing pink, which is a little weird, but it tastes good because the flavors get distributed better.

I didn't have applesauce, so I upped the soy milk to 1/2 a cup and threw 1/3 of an apple in instead. Worked out beautifully. I also added white beans and sunflower seeds to the salad. Very nice! The leftover dressing makes a wonderful dip for carrots.

Yes, both my hubby and I loved the salad and the dressing! He said, "we could have this every day"!

When we decided to "Eat To Live", we decided that getting a Vita-Mix would make it SO much easier. We had wanted one for quite awhile, so this was a great excuse, and since Christmas was almost here, we did it! It certainly makes the dressings much easier.

This is so good! The strawberries are a delightful addition to a spinach salad.
I ate 3 serving. Will fix this for guests to encourage others to ETL.

My husband and I really like this salad. Used fresh organic strawberries instead of frozen. So good.

I loved this salad! I didn't have any cashews or cashew butter so I used some almonds. The dressing came out great anyway - very, yummy!

This is a great one! I added red bell pepper to the salad to give it a little bite and off set the sweetness of the dressing. Very good!

Delicious salad! I threw 1/4 teaspoon of sesame seeds and a pinch of turmeric on top for crunch and to get my daily dose of turmeric.
