    Awesome. Great main course salad. All the ingredients go really well together. Recommend roasting the peppers with the sweet potatoes.

    Excellent salad. It goes together very quickly and tastes fantastic. I used 3 each U15 scallops for each plate and that was enough for a filling dinner salad. Filling, but light. I highly recommend it.

    We had this salad for dinner and loved it! They should publish a picture, it looks so pretty. Very light, but we were full and had left over salad. We used 3/4 pound of scallops and ate them all. I was worried that the scallops would be too bland with only salt and pepper, but with a little extra pepper they were fabulous. Loved it, and will definitely make it again!

    My husband and I made this for dinner and it was excellent! Definitely a keeper and we'll make it again. I followed the other suggestion and cooked the red pepper about 1/2 way through the sweet potato cooking time. The only thing I'd change is maybe adding some garlic or white wine to the scallops as they're cooking. Also, keep an eye on the pecans... They toast fast!

    This salad is requested almost every time we entertain guests - by my husband.
