Salad for days . . . .

You going to the grocery store today? You might want to grab the ingredients for this salad - Thai Carrot Salad With Curried Cashews. You can mix up the dressing and salad separately and the salad will keep for several days in the fridge. You can dress as you go - bring some to work, pull it out for dinner or lunch, you name it. Whip up an easy protein (fish, chicken, beef, tofu - if it's plain enough it'll ALL GO) and voila! A yummy meal. 

A couple notes - I used lacinato kale, AKA dinosaur kale, it's more tender. I also used pre-shredded carrots, and used 1/2 carrots and 1/2 Trader Joe's broccoli slaw, for variety. My red onion was nasty inside, so I chopped up a bunch of scallions and threw those in, and I used an ENTIRE bunch of cilantro - chopped that up and tossed that in. The more veg variation, the bettah!

In addition, for even EASIER prep, I used Trader Joe's Thai Lime & Chili cashews instead of making my own curried cashews. Point is, you can tweak this to your tastes and what you have on hand. What more can you ask for in a recipe?
