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.

Adapted from Melissa K Hand's Strawberry Fields recipe. Thanks for the great recipe!
