This hearty salad serves as a filling lunch or delicious dinner starter. For ease, make the Sweet-and-Spicy Pecans and Balsamic Vinaigrette ahead of time.

How to Make It

Toss together first 5 ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle with 1/2 cup Balsamic Vinaigrette, gently tossing to coat. Serve with remaining vinaigrette.

Best, best, best salad recipe! The balsamic dressing is delicious as are the sweet and spicy pecans. It's worth the time to make both. I break this out for company as it's always a favorite.

Where's the recipe for the dressing? I don't want to use the Newman's. When ads become more important than the recipes, I'll go elsewhere. Very disappointed in this site.

I made this salad I but didn't make the pecans, I used store bought. This is a GREAT salad!! Very tasty dressing. I did not add the oranges. This is definitely company worthy.

This was a great recipe - when the dressing recipe was included. Just went to look for it, as it's one of my all-time faves, and now I'm just linked to ads for balsamic vinaigrettes. Very disappointing.

Great salad recipe, especially in the Spring when you can get really good strawberries. I also use the dressing on regular salads.

This is one of my all-time favorite salad recipes. I have made it for Christmas dinner 2 years in a row. It always gets rave reviews from dinner guests. The mix of flavors (fruit, cheese, nuts and greens) is really fabulous with a tasty, slightly sweet dressing. Definitely a five-star recipe.

Love it! This is my go-to salad recipe for potlucks and entertaining. I always get lots of compliments and requests for the recipe. The dressing is a great on other salads as well. This is one to add to your favorites.
