Pecan Mandarin Salad Recipe

Pecans and canned mandarin oranges give this salad the color, crunch and sweetness needed to convince the children to eat their greens. Our young son, Cole, has more than enough energy to shake up the refreshing dressing for me.—Patricia Richrdson, Verona, Ontario

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 28, 2014

I prepared this salad last night with only very minor changes. I chopped the cucumbers instead of slicing them because they do not set well with my husband. I was very disappointed in the dressing. It was extremely bland. I will change the dressing the next time I prepare this dish. I see lots of possibilities with this salad. I recommend this recipe (with changes in the dressing) as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home.
