Very nice salad. Has all our favorite ingredients. The nuts are excellent-- had them in our salad plus on our ice cream and yes, did munch on them between. LOL! Thanks for sharing, breezer.

This salad has a nice combination of flavors, salty and sweet with a tangy from the dressing, that is topped off with spiced pecans. I made the nuts last week which were easy to make. As breesermom indicated you will munch on some each time you pass the container. This will be nice to serve for a dinner party. Don't go over board with the mustard or you'll mask the other flavors.
