“This is my new favorite salad. I took several recipes I found and combined what I liked from them to make this one. Notes: If you like your dressing a little less sweet, start with 1/4 cup sugar/sugar substitute and add more to taste. Instead of toasting the pecans, I bought glazed pecans from the grocery store. They give the salad a nice sweet/sour taste. If you can't find a raspberry vinegar for the dressing, just add about 1/4-1/3 cup fresh or frozen raspberries and blend with the other dressing ingredients”
