Spring Pea and Cashew Salad

This fresh Spring pea and cashew salad is one of our favorite go-to side dishes. It’s quick and simple with wonderful ingredients that make it both sweet and savory. It's always a hit at our table. Want to save even more time? Measure out the frozen peas in the morning and they will thaw in the fridge before you even get home. Easy-peasy!
For another amazing flavor combination, you can substitute California Apricot Balsamic for the Sunny Pineapple Balsamic.
