Strawberry & Candied Pecan Salad with chicken

The spice on the pecans is pumpkin pie flavored, and we love to snack on them by themselves, too! :)

The Cardini's Greek dressing compliments & finishes this salad perfectly...well worth hunting it down. It's a great dressing generally, too, so you will be happy to have it around! We love adding it to sandwiches and salmon burgers.
