This was very good. I love all of the ingredients (especially goat cheese), so I knew I would enjoy this salad. The dressing was a bit bland for me. I cut it in half (plenty for this amount of salad), but kept the amount of vinegar the same (in other words, I doubled the vinegar). I like my dressings zippy. I had a difficult time with the pecans too. The sugar mixture never browned, perhaps because I used a non-stick pan? Next time I will use another method, where you cook the pecans with just sugar in a skillet until the sugar melts and sticks to the pecans. That method works better for me. Thanks for sharing, I will make this again!

We added a touch of lime juice to the vinaigrette and it was fabulous. There is definitely way more than enough dressing... we probably drizzled 1/2 of it over the salad and it was plenty! Everyone loved the pecans the best! Thanks for the recipe:)

Wonderful salad! The pecans are lovely and the dressing is very tasty - it has a pretty potent flavor, however, so I recommend adding it to the salad in small amounts so you don't overwhelm it. Thanks for sharing!

Loved it! The candied pecans really made the salad for me. I used strawberries instead of cranberries and it was wonderful!
