    This salad is so good! I used monteray cheese instead of goat cheese and used homemade rasberry jam in the dressing. I did add a 2 tablespoons of sugar just because I thought it needed to be a little sweeter. Just personal preference. Thanks for a great salad!

    Lovely salad! The brown sugar on the pecans was great - I didn't even use the butter and carmelized with just a few tablespoons of the brown sugar. Thanks for posting!

    This salad was fantastic! I noticed the amount of brown sugar is missing from the ingredient list. I used 3 T. I also omitted the jam/jelly and dried ginger because I didn't have either in the pantry. I did use raspberry balsamic vinegar hoping it would be sweeter since I was out of jam and dried ginger. It was only thing on the buffet that was completed finished! Thank you!!!
