An usual but tasty flavor combination from the Austin Jr. League Cookbook...pecans are everywhere in central Texas so this is their own take on a more typical salad. :o)

Delicious! This was a wonderful combination of flavours and colours. My husband and I both enjoyed this salad; the only problem was practicing portion control!
