My girlfriend and I love Thai food and this Thai Cashew Chicken Salad recipe is out of this world! I don’t eat peanuts (did you know they aren’t even a nut?). So we spun a classic Thai dish to make it healthier and also peanut free. We swapped cashews and cashew butter in the recipe and its awesome!
