Very nice mix of flavors!! I scaled this back to 1/4 of the recipe and didn't opt to use the kiwi fruit. The dressing is very flavorful and the crunch from the pecans and apples provide for great texture. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for "For your Consideration Tag Game"
We loved this! By the time I went to make this the spinach had gone bad so we had to leave that out and no raspberry vinegar so I used rice vinegar and fresh raspberries. We will defiantly have this again.
A nice refreshing salad, love the dressing. The oranges, apples and nuts make it a great salad.
