Curried Cashew, Pear, and Grape Salad
  • 3/4 cup cashew halves
  • 4 slices bacon, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Dressing:
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • Salad:
  • 1 (10 ounce) package mixed salad greens
  • 1/2 medium Bosc pear, thinly sliced

  1. In a large, dry skillet over medium-high heat, toast cashews until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove cashews to a dish to cool slightly.

  3. In a medium bowl, stir together butter, rosemary, curry powder, brown sugar, salt, cayenne pepper, and toasted cashews. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together white wine vinegar, mustard, and honey. Slowly whisk in olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. In a large salad bowl, toss dressing with greens, pear slices, grapes, and bacon, and sprinkle with nut mixture.
