Citrus Cran-Apple Pecan Salad

Citrus Cran-Apple Pecan Salad

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.

Personal Review:

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.
