Such a simple salad, but so pretty, and so tasty. The dressing made twice as much as I needed, but all to the good because we will glady have this salad again today. I used white balsamic vinegar, which is fairly sweet, so I reduced the sugar by half (actually, I used 3 packages of Equal), and it was perfect for us.
This is an excellent salad. Very summery and refreshing. I used olive oil, and white wine vinegar because I had them on hand. I wish I hadn't put the whole batch of dressing in at once, it was a little heavy on the (delicious) dressing. Next time I will start with half and see if I need more.
Toasting the pecans makes all the difference! This salad is definitely a keeper. Make sure to toss with the lettuce RIGHT before serving. You don't want a salad this good to get soggy!
I make this for company. The dressing is a lovely pink.
Awesome salad dressing! I urge those who don't care for mandarin oranges or pecan to try this dressing on other salads. It is fabulous. I, personally, loved the contrast of flavors of the salad as posted and will make this again and again.
Made this tonight for dinner, I thought it was very good for a different kind of salad. I love any kind of salad that has mandarin oranges & nuts in it!
