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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place yogurt, mayonnaise, lemon juice, water, honey, curry powder, salt and pepper in a bowl or a blender; whisk or blend until smooth.

  • 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.

To toast cashews: Spread nuts on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F, stirring once, until fragrant, 7 to 9 minutes.

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 Read More

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. Read More
