Picnics and summer parties can be a little tricky when adhering to a Cancer-Free diet. Rather than choosing not to attend a party due to your diet or not eating at the party, bring a dish that is on your eating plan. The Crowd-Pleasing Asian Salad, lives up to its name AND is healthy for you to eat….bonus!
This recipe was borrowed from a great book that I stumbled upon: Cancer-Free with Food by Liana Werner-Gray.
Liana borrowed it from Charlene Bollinger, co-founder or TheTruthAboutCancer.com. This recipe is one of Bollinger’s family favorites!
Liana points out that the dish is satisfying with its protein from the nuts while the dressing is full of anti-oxidants.

4 green onions, chopped
1 cup raw cashews
3/4 cup organic sliced almonds

Pinch of fresh ground black pepper to taste
