I think this is a good salad, but there are too many "strong" flavors competing. I'd only use about 1/3 - 1/2 of the red onion in the salad and cut down on the lemon juice and add a bit of sugar to the dressing next time. I really did like the nutty crunch that the pecans added to the salad. Good luck in the contest! :)
