    PaulaG's Note:

    This is a winning recipe that was printed in the April/May 2009 Taste of Home. It is credited to Kristin Lossak of Bozzman, MT. I have not used the goat cheese but have made this several times using crumbled feta. When adding the cheese, I don't measure but give a nice sprinkling. The dressing makes it all come together.

      Great salad! I added 2 tablespoons balsamico to the dressing, just to give little more zing.

      Excellent salad. I just loved those toasted and sugared pecans! The dressing was really wonderful, too. I used the goat cheese because I love it with beets. I did add some onions, but that's all I did differently. Thanx for sharing this awesome salad!

      Loved this salad! I used the last of my little beets from the garden and feta cheese. All so good together, I will make again. Thanks Paula! Made for the Diabetic party!
