This salad was excellent. The spiced nuts and the fresh salad dressing really added to the great taste of this crisp salad. Following the directions for the spiced pecans, I had enough coating mixture for more than one cup so I tossed in two more cups of pecans before baking them . They make really good snacks too. I will be making this salad dressing for other salads as well because this was an excellent dressing. Thanks for posting your recipe. Made for Fall PAC 2008.
