Remember my Maple Citrus Roasted Pecans? They are in this salad too. They offer up crunchy sweet satisfaction.

Dress this salad however you wish. I like a citrus dressing, just a simple twist of fresh lemon and olive oil.

Another wintery salad you gotta check out is my Bacon, Sweet Potato, Pomegrante Spinach Salad.

For good measure you have to add some creamy avocado chunks to this too.
