Broccoli Cauliflower and Cashew Salad

Sometimes you need something different to go alongside your summer burger or pulled pork sandwich.  This one caught my eye because of the yummy cashews, and it so happened I just bought a monstrous can of them at Sams Club!  This salad is great, the dressing is sweet but compliments everything well.  The hubby doesn't care for cashews much, so he got peanuts instead....he said it worked well, just in case you're not a cashew fan :)

Broccoli Cauliflower and Cashew Salad
From:Macaroni and Cheesecake

Salad Mixture:

1 bag raw broccoli/cauliflower mix (or 1/2 head of broccoli & 1/2 head of cauliflower, cut into pieces)
1 head Romaine lettuce, torn into pieces (or about 1 1/2 bag salad mix)
2 cups 2% Shredded Four Cheese Blend (or cheese of your choice)
2 cups seasoned croutons
2 cups unsalted cashews (put peanuts on my hubby's portion)
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese


1 cup Light Mayonnaise
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan Cheese

Toss together all ingredients in salad mixture, set aside. For the Dressing mix together the mayo, sugar and parmesan cheese. Stir vigorously until well combined. Right before serving pour dressing over salad and toss to coat salad evenly.
