This recipe makes for a very nice tasting, definitely unusual salad, & one that I'm happy to put together again sometime next year when blueberries are plentiful! Although I did leave out the fresh berries this time, true to the season I added a similar measure of dried cranberries, & we thought that worked out quite well! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Great main meal salad. I wasn't sure how it would come together, such a unique blend of ingredients. however, it turned out wonderful, sweet and savory and crunchy and soft. a wonderful blend of textures and flavors. I did make it with romaine instead of spinach, since my family prefers it and I had it on hand. Love love love the crunchy pecan syrup thing, that was a wonderful touch. I absolutely loved the flavor of the chicken, I will be sure to use that blend of seasonings and marinade in other dishes as well. thanks for a unique and delish recipe!

This has a very interesting mix of flavors. I really didn't know what to expect but found it rather good. The maple and onion come together distinctly but harmoniously. I think next time I'll skip the blueberries it was a little more sweetness that just wasn't needed.

This was a great dinner salad which we enjoyed! I skipped the pecans and also half the maple syrup. I used a fat-free onion dressing instead of the vinaigrette that was mentioned in the ingredients. Delish! Thanks for sharing!

This is my to-die-for-perfect-dinner salad! I admit, rather than cook the apple in the maple syrup separate from the pecans, after turning the apple slices over while cooking in the maple syrup, I added the remaining syrup and added the pecans to glaze! Not sure if this was okay or not, still turned out fabulous! Thanks, MarraMamba! Made for ZWT4.
