What a delightful change of pace this salad is! We really thought the pecans brought a great layer of flavor and texture. I did cut the recipe way down making just a quarter and yes it cuts down very well, the only thing I would do different next is to cut down the mayo and sour cream just a smidgen as there was little more than DH and I want on ours. But we both enjoyed the flavor and thought it would be a good pot luck dish and will be made again this summer. Thanks for the post.
