My grandparents grew pomegranates, pecans and walnuts and would send us some each year. Some of my best memories are the days I used to spend with my grandmother learning how to cook with her. Whenever I make this it's like having lunch with my grandmother again. —Wendy Ball, Battle Creek, Michigan

"Not Wendy's at all! Totally wrong cheese. Missing: mixed greens, fugi apples, candied pecans, cran raisons and most importantly Where's the chicken??"

"Very good except it's not Wendy's apple and pecan salad. I order it every time and I love it. Missing the mixed greens, chicken, sweet sugared pecans and the great dressing. And don't forget the croutons."

"Yummy salad! I used a Braeburn instead of a Granny Smith and, because of the sweetness of the Braeburn, I omitted the sugar in the dressing. The walnuts and Parmesan were great additions. Will definitely make this salad again."
