Cashew nuts are nutritionally much the same as other nuts: they are high in fat (around 50 percent), rich in vitamin E and a good source of minerals, particularly magnesium and zinc.

While high in fat, all nuts are ranked highly for their healthy unsaturated fats.

The most common source of gluten in teriyaki sauce is the soy sauce.

Most soy sauces, unless labeled gluten-free, contain wheat as well as soybeans, salt and water.

However, commercially available teriyaki sauces may also include gluten-containing additives.

So, when making your own teriyaki chicken, always check the label for gluten free soy sauce.

Ingredients

For the Salad

  • 3-4 Chicken Breasts, cooked in Teriyaki sauce *see note
  • 1 Large Bag of Spring Salad Mix
  • 1 Can Mandarin Oranges, drained (I left these out this time since my kids tend to eat those and nothing else)
  • 1 Cup Celery, sliced *optional
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, Sliced
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper, sliced
  • 1 Can Pineapple Chunks, drained
  • 4 Green Onions, chopped
  • 1 Cup Raspberries
  • 1 Cup Cashews
  • Dressing (recipe follows)

In a blender combine,

  • 3/4 Cup White Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Dry Mustard
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons White Vinegar
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Tablespoon Diced, Red Onion
  • 1 Cup Canola Oil
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons of Poppy Seeds

Instructions

For the Salad

  1. In a large platter, flat to spread out, arrange the lettuce with all of the other ingredients on top, leaving the cashews to be added right before serving, so as to not get soggy. Sometimes it's also nice to just arrange the ingredients around the side, so everyone can take what they want if it is being served family style in a casual setting.
  2. Drizzle the dressing and top with cashews, serve immediately.

For the Dressing

  1. Blend the sugar, mustard and vinegars on high until thoroughly mixed, this should only need a few pulses.
  2. Turn off the blender.
  3. Add the purple onion.
  4. Turn the blender back on and in a slow, steady stream drizzle in the canola oil.
  5. Add in the poppy seeds and give the blender a few quick pulses to mix in the poppy seeds.
  6. Chill and serve over the salad.

Notes

Cook the chicken in a dish with teriyaki sauce for 30 minutes at 350.

  1. The chicken teriyaki salad looks and sounds wonderful. Please clarify for me one thing about the dressing: ingredients calls for two kinds of vinegar but recipe directions does not mention the cider vinegar. When does it go in?

  2. Mmm, this salad looks lovely. Combine fuit with meat seams great. There also are nuts. It must be delicious. Thank you for the inspiration! You are welcome to visit my website – just click my name 😉

  3. I’m making this salad tonight, I’m hoping when you say 3/4 sugar you mean 3/4 cup? Seems like a lot of sugar! Maybe you mean 3/4 teaspoon? Oye! This could be a disaster.

  4. This salad looks amazing! Beautiful and yummy both!

    I just stumbled across your blog and love it! Recipes! How fun! And- can I just say- the chocolate-strawberry idea further down looks like I need to go make some.
