Candied Cashew Mandarin Orange Salad

Today I thought I would take a little break from all the wonderful makeup reviews and share a healthy salad recipe. Salad doesn't have to be boring, in fact they can be quite appetizing and filling! My candied cashew mandarin orange salad has become a favorite in my family! It contains protein, vitamins and many other essential nutrients, it is also easy to prepare and tastes delicious.

*Mixed field green lettuce (I use organic)
*Finely diced green onion
*Cheddar cheese (small cubes) low fat varieties can be used
*Candied cashews (crushed) 
*Sweet corn (canned)
*Mandarin oranges (canned or bottled variety. There are brands with no added sugar available)
*Seasoned baked pita crisps (or seasoned croutons)
*Avocado (cubed)
* Kraft Greek feta and oregano dressing (or preferred dressing)

Sometimes I make my own vinaigrette dressing but for this salad I like the Kraft Greek feta and oregano. You can use whatever dressing you prefer but I usually opt for the low fat, low calorie variety and this one is great with the salad.

This salad is slightly sweet and savory yet nutritious and satisfying. I also like the crunch from the pita crisps and nuts.

If you have some mandarin orange left over it can be added to a fruit salad the next day as a part of a healthy lunch.

~Bon Appetit!
