      Lovely salad! The brown sugar on the pecans was great - I didn't even use the butter and carmelized with just a few tablespoons of the brown sugar. Thanks for posting!

      This salad is so good! I used monteray cheese instead of goat cheese and used homemade rasberry jam in the dressing. I did add a 2 tablespoons of sugar just because I thought it needed to be a little sweeter. Just personal preference. Thanks for a great salad!
