Great salad! Thanks for sharing. My only problem is the amount of oil, which increases the calories astronomically. I used 2 tbsp butter in the pecans, and I would recommend using half the oil or a commercially made balsamic vinaigrette.

WOW! This salad is so awesome, and every bit as good as the one at the restaurant (which is phenomenal). I used Trader Joe's sweet and spicy pecans for this instead of making them this time around. The only change I would make for next time is to decrease the oil by about 25 percent. We are huge salad eaters, but I think this would still feed at least 8 for us. Thank you for sharing this!

I recently had this salad on my birthday and loved it. My kids even loved it, and they're not salad eaters. I knew I had to find the recipe. I made it tonight using cherry tomatoes. It tasted just like what I had in the restaurant. Thanks for posting it. It's definitely one of the best salads I've ever had.

I just had this at Buca di Beppo on Friday and was over taken by the wonderfulness of it! I was so excited to come home and find it on Zaar! I cheated a bit and purchased candied pecans and warmed them in the oven. I also blended the dressing in my blender instead of by hand to emulsify it better. Definitely a keeper in my home.
