Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This salad is very easy to make and a great dish to take to parties. For variation, if you want more of a "bite" to this salad, use chopped red onions and in place of the cashews use 1 lb. crumbled bacon. Add a dash of cayenne pepper to the mayonnaise and lemon dressing. This is one of Gabe's favorite salads!
