Apple Pecan Salad

This is a great fall salad recipe.  If you are lucky enough to be able to source freshly picked apples it is outstanding.  But, since apples are available all year round in most places you can make it any time.

I like to use pecan halves for the candied nuts. If the nut pieces are too fine they sort of get lost in the mix.  With the halves – you know when you get one!   You can use walnuts instead of pecans if you prefer.

I think it might also be good with dried cranberries instead of the dates.  I haven’t tried that yet but if anyone does let me know how you liked it!

Update Nov 11, 2016.  I changed the photo of this salad to better reflect it. Sorry for any confusion… the other pic just had to go!!
