This is a perfect autumn salad… warming, comforting & delicious. Thanks to Sweet Treats & More for providing the recipe. I made the following substitutions:

  • Instead of using regular caramel sauce, I made a home made version out of soaked dates & cashews: recipe here
  • I marinated garbanzo beans instead of chicken and sauteed them in the marinade before putting them in the salad.
  • I used crumbled cashew cheese (recipe here) instead of feta cheese.

Overall I was very pleased with the way this salad turned out. Now I have to get to work in the kitchen. I have tofu and pesto sandwiches on the menu tonight – hopefully it all goes well =) Also, I have changed/updated the recipe index – so you should check it out =)
