To prepare dressing, combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Gradually drizzle in oil, stirring constantly with a whisk.
To prepare salad, combine romaine and next 4 ingredients (through chicken) in a bowl; toss gently. Place about 2 cups chicken mixture on each of 4 plates. Top each serving with 1 1/2 teaspoons cashews and 2 tablespoons cheese. Drizzle about 4 teaspoons dressing over each serving.
this is a really great, fresh, fast salad that can be made at home but tastes like something you'd get in a restaurant! my fiance and i don't like blue cheese so we substituted reduced fat feta and used slivered almonds instead of cashews. soooo good!
I was really looking forward to this and it just wasn't good. The only changes I made to the recipe were using a pomegranate red wine vinegar and grilled chicken instead of store-bought rotisserie, The flavors did not come together at all. Something about the combination of the arugula, the strawberries, and the blue cheese was very unpleasant although I can't quite pinpoint exactly what made it so offensive to my palate. I definitely will not make this again.
