This recipe was awesome. I loved the combination of the fresh fruit with the sweet pecans. The dressing was lively and I loved the flavor from the thyme. Instead of mint, I used basil. I will definitely make again. Made for ZWT 8.

What a wonderful and refreshing salad!!! Just loved the mango and kiwi, but the star of the salad had to be those wonderful sweet pecans, yummy!!! The dressing is also very fresh and a little citrus flavor, which I also love!! Thanks so much for sharing a yummy salad for this part of ZWT8.
