I found this online while looking for the perfect salad for a fall dinner party. It was adapted from the Canyon Ranch Cooks cookbook. This recipe is delicious and my guests were quite impressed!

I loved this too. I took it to a salad potluck where it was eaten, although I didn't see anybody headed back for seconds. I had enough left for lunch the next day. I didn't have pumpkin pie spice, so used a combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.

I really liked it but I took it to a pot luck where hardly anyone tried it and I ended up wasting 2/3 of a bowl of it.

Hey!! This is really great and since I was at the Canyon Ranch last year (Lenox, MA), I ran to make this up. Really good, different and easy. Thank you!
