Tangy Thai Nectarine Salad

Serves 2-4

This is such an easy salad, yet so delicious and refreshing! I was inspired by the nectarines I purchased the other day, but still hadn't eaten. They smelled soooo good this afternoon, and since I had already decided to experiment with a Thai-style chicken burger for dinner, I came up with a Thai-inspired salad to toss these perfectly ripened nectarines in. I will absolutely make this recipe again...and again...and, yeah. ;)




Ingredients:
  • 1 pkg Romaine hearts
  • 1 ripe nectarine, sliced
  • A handful of Sing Buri cashews, chopped (you can also use regular roasted cashews or peanuts)
  • Fresh cilantro leaves
  • Crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. Tamari or soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. light brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. Kosher salt
  • Juice of 1 lime
Directions:

Arrange Romaine hearts on a pretty plate. Place nectarine slices on top of the Romaine. Sprinkle with fresh cilantro leaves & Sing Buri nut blend. Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl to make the dressing. Pour over salad just before serving. Sprinkle with crushed red pepper flakes if desired. Goes really well with my Green Curry Chicken Burgers! :)
