This is a great spring/summer salad to serve when you're looking for something a little different. It's colorful, healthy, and looks beautiful! Originally from the Houston Chronical's food section featuring favorite spring menus.

Great Salad!! I had to omit the avocado for dietary reasons - but it tasted amazing even without it! The lime juice and zest give this salad a fantastic taste!!! Thank-you for posting this!

YUM! This salad is so wonderful! The dressing just gives it such a fresh taste. The only change I made was to use half fresh spinach and half iceburg lettuce, but as soon as the fresh leaf lettuce comes in, I will be making this again. Oh, and because we have 4 pecan trees in our yard, we use alot of pecans. I increased the tablespoon of toasted pecans to 1/2 cup and just sprinkled them onto the salad. My whole family loved this salad. Thank you for sharing!!
