"This recipe is definitely a keeper. I made it for our small group that meets weekly but monthly for a meal. I toasted the pecans and Smart Balance mayo. It was a wonderful mix of apple/maple/pecan flavors. Delicious. I made a 2nd batch up for us at home and used 1/2 olive oil and 1/2 canola for the oil. Still delicious. Can't wait to try it over salmon or chicken salad. The men raved about it. I'm never embarrassed to take T of H recipes; I can always count on them to make me "look good". :)"
