This citrus cran-apple pecan salad is very tasty.
The pecans are a sweet and nutty addition to a delicious fruit and veggie salad. Perks of these pecans are that they are rich in fiber and antioxidants that are optimal for a healthy heart. Along with a homemade dressing, this nutritious salad makes for an extremely satisfying side dish. The avocado contains an abundance of healthy fatty acids as well as many minerals and vitamins.
For a citrusy blast of vitamin C, we added mandarin oranges to the salad, along with some beautiful and scrumptious red apples. Since an apple a day keeps the doctor away, this salad is a guaranteed hit for the health conscious person with a sweet tooth.

I crave pecans and enjoy the addition of them into this sweet and tasty salad. This is a perfect example of just how good a healthy and delicious vegan salad can taste. If you are vegetarian, then goat cheese or blue cheese are two possible adaptations to the original citrus cran-apple pecan salad recipe.
A homemade Vinaigrette Dressing topped this salad perfectly. This dressing really made the entire citrus cran-apple pecan salad recipe a success. The salad is sweet enough, that for me, dressing is not a necessary. But if opting for dressing, you can never go wrong with a nice homemade dressing.
