Mandarin Orange Salad with Pecans

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 0 mins

My mom uses almonds when she does this salad. I use pecans. You can also "candy" the pecans by putting thime in a pan with some sugar and cooking until the sugar has caramelized. Remove from the heat and pour onto foil and let cool. Break the pecans apart and toss with the salad.
