"Hubby and I both enjoyed this one. Super easy to prepare and its so tasty. Even better the next day. I did not have any pecans but next time I definitely will add them. I did not add an Honey to the mixture. I really liked the crunchy celery. And the addition of both mustard and Worcestershire sauce. It seemed to mellow out and lighten up the mayo based dressing. It was very good on bread, Toast and Crackers.

"I slow cooked a small ham for this and it turned out great. The variety of spices really bring out some great flavors. The honey adds a nice touch of sweetness."
