    LizP's Note:

    Sweet, sour, tangy, creamy and crunchy--this is the ultimate salad. So many tastes and textured, we just love it. You can substitute strawberries for the apples. YUM! Also good with grilled chicken or grilled shrimp! Cooking time reflects the preparation of the pecans. It makes a lot, once you have them made, you have enough for several salads.

      What a fantastic salad! I prepared the nuts a day in advance, and I was lucky to have any left for the salad, they are so good! I also made the dressing a day also. I used feta instead of blue cheese, served this with romaine lettuce. DH gave this "two thumbs up" we loved this liz, I can't wait to make this again, thanks for sharing such a great recipe!...Kitten:)

      We all loved this salad! I made it the first time when I had a houseful of guests- it was a hit! The pecans are fantastic - hard to resist nibbling on the leftovers. I simply grated onion on a fine grater for the onion juice in the dressing recipe.
