½ cup cashews (optional)
1 medium cucumber, sliced into ½-inch quarters (about 8 oz)
1 small red bell pepper, sliced thin (about 8 oz)
1 small head of Napa cabbage, sliced thin (about 1 lb)
3 scallions, diced
½ cup cilantro, diced
4 Medjool dates, pitted (or 1 orange, peeled)
2 limes, juiced
¼ cup low-sodium vegetable broth
¼ cup rice vinegar
1 teaspoon ground ginger

- Preheat oven to 350°F. Place the cashews on a baking dish. Toast in the oven for about 10 minutes, stirring after 5 minutes. When cashews are golden, remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
- In a medium-size bowl, add cucumber, bell pepper, cabbage, scallions, and cilantro. Toss gently.
- In a small blender, combine the remaining ingredients. Blend into a smooth and creamy dressing.
- Pour the dressing over the salad, and toss well. Sprinkle cashews over the salad just before serving, and enjoy!
