Each year my company has a cook-off. This was this year's winner in the Salad-Taster's Choice category. It was so yummy, I thought I had to share it! (Courtesy of Becky Miller)

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.
