1. Soak the raw cashews in water overnight.

2. Drain the cashews. Add the grapeseed oil, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, salt, pepper and cashews to the blender. The Magic Bullet Blender is a perfect size for making salad dressings if you have one. Blend until smooth then transfer to a container with a lid. Small canning jars work nicely.

3. Prepare all the vegetables, be sure they are all washed and dried.

4. Cut the broccoli into small pieces. Cut the tomatoes and grapes into halves. Chop the parsley.

5. Make the salad directly onto your serving dish. Start by tearing the lettuce leaves into bite sized portion with your fingertips. Place all the remaining ingredients on top.

6. Spoon 2 tablespoons of dressing onto each portion this size. Serve right away.
