      I modified the dressing somewhat, as mentioned before. I only left out the onions and raisins. I used frozen cranberries in the dressing, but tossed dried cranberries into the salad, along with the onions, apples and pecans. I wasn't thrilled with the process of cooking the pecans--first they were sticky and then they seemed a bit overdone. I'm not sure the salad is improved that much by that extra step--I may just toss plain pecans or walnuts in next time. I think the combination is really nice and I liked the cranberry based vinaigrette a bunch.

      This was absolutely wonderful! My girls really liked it too. Nice mix of sweet & savory. I used baby spinach with my greens.
