Notes

Toasted Pecans

I love making this recipe with toasted pecans because it adds so much flavor to the salad. To toast the pecans:

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Spread pecan halves out in a single layer. Bake for 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally and keeping a close eye on the nuts. Remove from the oven, let cool, and then chop for the salad.
