Here we toss fresh salad greens with a light and creamy dressing, then top with chopped hard-boiled egg, crunchy bell pepper, dried cranberries and toasted cashews for a satisfying vegetarian salad. Try this salad for a take-along lunch. To keep the salad greens from getting soggy, pack the greens, salad toppings and dressing in separate containers and toss them together just before eating.

  • Ready In

  1. Place yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, water, honey, curry powder, salt and pepper in a bowl or a blender; whisk or blend until smooth.
  2. Place greens in an individual salad bowl; toss with 2 tablespoons of the dressing. (Refrigerate the remaining dressing.) Top the greens with bell pepper, cranberries, egg and cashews.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate leftover dressing for up to 5 days.
  • Tips: To hard-boil eggs, place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan; cover with water. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and cook at the barest simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, pour out hot water and cover the eggs with ice-cold water. Let stand until cool enough to handle before peeling.

Review for Curried Salad with Egg & Cashews This is an extremely delightful salad. I and my girlfriend enjoy salads and make them often. This is our favorite. By adding a little chopped chicken breast or small to medium shrimp it becomes a meal in itself. We especially enjoy this salad with baked Salmon. Pros: Easy to prepare, extremely tasty, can be a meal in itself. Cons: None

Dressing is the BEST I LOVE this recipe!! The dressing in particular is fantastic and I have served it at many parties, with many people asking for the recipe afterwards. I don't use low-fat mayo, preferring real mayo instead, and just use less of it. Approx. 2/3 cup plain Greek yogurt + 1/3 cup real mayo. Quick & easy to whisk up in a small bowl.
