My Favorite Salad

I had a friend bring this salad over to my house (Kaycia!:)) and both Todd and I just loved it!  We agreed it is a favorite, we both took a bite and just looked at each other with wide eyes and a smile--yes, it is that good!

 The dressing is tangy, the apples are tart and crisp, the grapes are sweet and the candied pecans are like a crunchy dessert topping!

 I had to have the recipe so I could make it myself and share it with all of you.

~Salad-greens ( I love to use Butter/boston lettuce and red leaf in the mix)
~Red grapes
~Granny smith apples
~Candied pecans (recipe below)
~Dressing (recipe below)

Toss and Serve.

Candied pecans-
3/4 c brown sugar (If you are looking for low sugar, I think this could be reduced)
1/2 t cinnamon
1/4 c margarine
1 c chopped pecans

In small pan melt margarine, stir in brown sugar and cinnamon. After that mix in the pecans, coating them with the mixtutre. Pour into pan in single layer and bake at 200 for about 10 minutes. Pour onto wax paper. Cool and separate.

1 c oil
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c vinegar
3 T Dijon
1 T Worcestershire
1/2 t salt
Blend together.


  1. This is one I'll definitely be trying soon. Honestly, you had me at candied pecans!

  2. oh yummy. I'll bet this would be awesome with pears when they're in season too.
