Strawberry Salad Recipe

4 cups fresh Strawberries; rinsed, hulled, and sliced
2 Tbs. Caramel Ice Cream Topping
2 Tbs. Maple Syrup
2 Tbs. Orange Juice
1/2 cup Cashew Halves

Meanwhile, toast the cashew halves lightly in a 350-F degree oven for about 8 to 10 minutes to enhance the flavor of the nuts. Place the prepared strawberries in a serving bowl. In a separate container, mix together the caramel topping, maple syrup, and orange juice. (You may want to microwave the mixture to facilitate the blending a bit.) When the dressing is thoroughly combined, drizzle it over the top of the strawberries.

Either sprinkle the toasted cashews over the top of the strawberry salad and serve immediately, or refrigerate the berry mixture and reserve the toasted cashews in a separate container until you're ready to serve.
