      Absolutely fantastic! Lots of yummy ingredients and textures. Loved the combination of apricots and goat cheese. Had a little dressing left over and used it the next day on a simple salad of spinach, bacon, and egg. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      Loved it, even though I managed to mess up and leave out my very favorite ingredient - the goat cheese! Can't wait to make it WITH the goat cheese next time...love the texture the avocado and pecans give - can't go wrong with this salad. Will make again and again as this salad gives a little different twist to what guests "expect" in a salad.

      I followed this recipe exactly. if I were to make this salad again, I would probably eliminate either the onions or the avacados, just because I felt there were too many flavors competing in this salad. It wasn't the balance of bitter and sweet that I was hoping for. The colors made for a beautiful presentation.
