Expert Tips

Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.

This salad can be made several hours ahead. Add the cashews just before serving.

Try garnishing with edible flowers. Nasturtiums, pansies and violas are just a few examples.
