Zupas “Summer Salad” Recipe
I love this salad from Zupas! So So So Yummy. I went online to try and find a copy-cat recipe. Nothing really tasted 100% correct, but with a little experimentation….I think I got it!  I have the recipe for the salad and the dressing below. You have got to try this! 
(recipe serves 4, just half all of the ingredients if there are only 2 of you)
For the Salad: 
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 1 head of red leaf lettuce, chopped
  • 10 red grapes, rinsed
  • crasins (dried cranberries)
  • 5-6 strawberries, sliced
  • 1/4 cup of cashews, chopped (I put mine in a food processor)
  • 1 cup cooked Chicken, diced (I used one breast and grilled, but could be done ahead of time and served cold)
For the Dressing: 
  •  5-6 ripe strawberries, diced
  • 3/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • water (to add in at the end if too strong) 

Dressing Directions:
1. In a medium sized container mix the strawberries, salt, sugar, and vinegar. Blend well in a blender. While blending slowly add in all of the oil, blending until smooth.

Just put the salad together, drizzle the dressing and enjoy! (the cashews go on top)
