"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, though...so once you have them made, you have enough for several salads."

"Oh yea- The recipes name says it all----I loved the nuts and everything else about this salad!!!Thanx for sharing"
"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:)"
"Had this for lunch today and it was very yummy."
"We truly enjoyed this salad. I did make a change to the nuts. I didn't have any cayenne so I subed a bit of seasoning salt and I only made the dressing with half the amount of sugar listed. I don't like blue cheese so I used feta as a reviewer had and it was still delicious. The leftover vinigrette will be good on other greens as well."
"DH agreed with the title, but the rest of us rated it a little lower. Only DH did not find the nuts too spicy and they were a bit time consuming to make. The dressing was quite sweet and made way way more than we needed. I did not have onion juice, or know how to make it, so I pureed it in my blender with the vinegars before adding the other ingredients. The variety of tates between the apple, blue cheese, nuts and greens was truly delightful."
"I knew that I would love this salad. The nuts are scrumptious and I couldn't stop eating them! My husband had requested a "good salad" and he really enjoyed it as well. I had to use feta, but can't wait to try it with the blue cheese. Roxygirl in Colo."
