    Don't know if I should even review this recipe! I didn't have prosciutto so used bacon. Didn't have spinach, but I had very fresh spectrum greens. No pecans so I used walnuts. No shallots so I used red onion. No nectarines but I had just been given several clemantines. So did it work anyway? Well YES! Especially loved the spicy candied walnuts, YUMMMM!

    I have made this salad several times. Some exactly as written and in many other varieties. It has always been wonderful. go ahead and exchange I'm sure you will love it. Make extra spicy nuts to save for snacks they are fabulous.

    This is an excellent combination of salty, sweet, tangy, and nutty. Perfect for company. I think you could riff off of this salad in any number of ways, as long as you keep a salty, crispy meat, a tangy fruit, and the spiced nuts.
