Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Be sure to not add the dressing too soon. By doing this your salad will become soggy. 
  • Pecans are a welcome addition to this salad, but you can swap them out if you choose for another nut or leave them off completely if there is a nut allergy. 
  • You can easily swap out the nuts for sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds. 
  • If you really want to add another layer of flavor to this salad use these delicious candied pecans

Storage

Unfortunately, salads do not store well after they have the dressing on them. If you know you are going to have leftovers I recommend only dressing part of the salad so you can store the rest. You can store salad for up to 2 days in an airtight container in the fridge. 

Make Ahead

Because of the beautiful presentation, you might not want to make this salad right before dinner. If this is the case, you can easily make this salad a couple of hours ahead of time and cover and place it in the fridge until you are ready to serve.
