This salad was awesome! A few adjustments we made were we added bacon to the salad. It added a wonderful texture and taste. My husband absolutely loved it!!
A delicious and lovely salad. 4-and-a-half stars. It is quite a bit of work (unless one happens to have glazed pecans on hand) but scrumptious. It would be perfect for company.
