      This was a perfect salad for DH: good ingredients and a non-intrusive vinaigrette. I think my reservation stemmed from my lackluster feta cheese -- I yearned for blue cheese or a jazzier version of feta cheese. I should have stopped toasting the pecans at 8 minutes, mine at 9 minutes were slightly over done. DH will bug me to make this again soon. Thanks for posting, Cooks4_6!. Made for Healthy Choces ABC Tag.

      A very nice salad. I think I expected more fruitiness in the dressing. I may try some other vinigrettes--with this combination of greens, fruits and nuts--in the future, but I definitely will make this salad again.

      Very good! I made half the salad for lunch today for my DH and I. We also subbed reduced fat feta and splenda in place of the sugar as Sarah_Jayne noted. After lunch my DH said he'd 'give this one his highest mark' - what a complement and I certainly agree. Simple and very quick to prepare. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag game.
