Fabulous salad for a fall dinner with friends or a holiday dinner. The cashew flavoring really adds to the salad and you can make the cashews just for snacking as well. My roommate suggested this salad to me and it is just tasty!

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spread cashews on a baking sheet.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Stir in brown sugar, curry powder, rosemary, salt, and cayenne pepper until smooth.

  • Toast cashews in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Add to the saucepan with the butter mixture; stir until coated. Let cool, about 10 minutes.

  • Sprinkle cashews over salad plates. Drizzle dressing on top.
