  • 6 cups romaine lettuce chopped

  • 6 ounce cashew cheese crumbled (See Note)


  • ½ cup white champagne vinegar
  • 3 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • In a large bowl, toss the romaine lettuce and arugula until combined.

Make the seitan chicken a day or two before and grill or sear in a pan before slicing.
We like Treeline brand Herb Garlic soft cheese for this salad. 
How do you store it?
Store the salad in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
Can I freeze it?
This salad doesn't freeze well and is best eaten shortly after making it.
