In this article I am going to show you how to make a mushroom and cashew nut salad. It is an excellent option to eat alone or to accompany some kind of grilled meat.

Keep in mind that you can vary the ingredients of the recipe for others that are similar and the result will be very similar. For example, you can use almonds instead of cashews, or tybo cheese instead of pategrás cheese.

These types of modifications will allow you to adapt the recipe of this salad to your tastes and ingredients that you can find more easily in your area.

Nutritional benefits of cashews

Cashews are a source of important nutrients for our health. They are rich in magnesium, iron, potassium and folic acid. Magnesium helps maintain healthy blood pressure, iron is necessary for red blood cell production and potassium helps regulate fluid balance in the body. Folic acid is essential for cell growth and blood formation. In addition, cashews are a healthy source of monounsaturated fats, which help lower cholesterol and triglycerides. Therefore, including cashews in your diet can be an excellent way to increase nutrient intake.

If you do not want to use cashews for this recipe, other nuts such as almonds or walnuts can be used. Almonds are rich in vitamin E, which is an important antioxidant for health. They are also a good source of monounsaturated fats, which helps lower cholesterol and triglycerides. Walnuts are also rich in healthy fats and contain vitamin E, magnesium and iron. In addition, nuts contain fiber, which helps promote digestion and maintain a healthy digestive system. Therefore, by using these nuts in place of cashews, you can get many of the same nutritional health benefits.

  5. Now we are going to add the mushrooms with the browned onion, which by this time of the recipe should have cooled down enough.
