Kevin and I were craving a salad on a hot day after the lake. Our taste buds were craving something with Asian flare and I had most of the ingredients for something thai... lime, cilantro, cashews.

I stumbled upon Lindsey's blog over at Pinch of Yum and fell in love with her chopped thai salad. It's absolutely gorgeous for one. And all five humans consumed it in silence -- which translates "this is amazing." I substituted soy sauce for tamari and kept this gluten-free.

So if you are in a pinch and looking for an easy spin on a salad that feeds like a meal, try this one and let us know what you thought!
