    Naturalbohemian's Note:

    UPDATED -- Please note: The nutritional information (fat and calories) on this salad for each serving is incorrect because it was calculated using all the salad dressing for 4-6 servings of the salad. The recipe makes lots of extra dressing. This salad is wonderful! My husband and I came up with the ingredients for the salad itself to go along with a delicious maple dressing from the book "What's cooking America". All the flavors of the different ingredients blend and coalesce into the most mellow, nutty sweet flavor, that is very autumnal and heavenly! And very nutritious too. You really need all the ingreds. to achieve the wonderful flavor. Make sure you toast the pecans, as the toasting really brings out the flavor, and let the jicama matchsticks sit in the ice water a bit to really intensify their crunchy sweetness.Make sure all the ingredients are very fresh. (I buy prewashed/packaged baby spinach to speed things up and dispense with the rinsing and drying). Vary salad ingredient amounts to taste (we never measure). I hope you enjoy it as much as we have.

      a beautiful salad! Great combo of veggies.I might have liked some other salad greens mixed in with the spinach. The dressing was quite good as well. Of course if your family is anything like mine, have some Ranch dressing on hand as well.
