Just Like LongHorn's Strawberry Pecan Salad

"This salad is the best salad I have ever eaten. I had it at the Long Horn and have been hooked ever since. It is great served as a salad, or you can add chicken and have it as a meal. PLEASE NOTE: Be sure and dry the fruit well so it doesn't water down the salad. If you want to make your own sugar-glazed pecans melt about 1/2 stick of butter in a small pan, and add about 1/4 cup sugar, and stir to dissolve. Add in nuts, and stir until the sauce thickens. Take off heat and place on waxed paper until glaze hardens on nuts."

This is a really fabulous salad. I used Queenbea's Strawberry Vinaigrette for the dressing and it was excellent with this type of salad. It's the best salad I have ever had. I will have this salad often!

 

Review by StansBetterHalf

My hubby grilled some flank steak and I thought this salad would go nicely with it. It was far above your average salad. Such freshness with all the fruit, and the nuts and cheese along with the salad dressing really blew it out of the water!

Hands down the best salad I ever put in my mouth! I made my own raspberry dressing and it went very well together. I dream about this salad!

Review by jlsnana

I have had this salad at Long Horns and I am so happy to find it posted here. This is the best salad! I could eat one every day it's so good. I made your sugared nuts to have with it. I especially enjoy it with all the fruits so good right now!

 

Review by JackieStu

This isn't a salad, it's a dessert! Just kidding, but it is fabulous and I can't stop making them. I want them every day! I put shrimp on one day and then chicken on another and steak strips on yet another. OMG it's sooooooo good!

 

Review by MeganJonMason

This salad has all kinds of flavors going on with each bite. It is one of the best salads I have ever eaten and I loved every single thing in it, including the salad dressing I used which was made with raspberries. This salad couldn't be any better!

 

Review by KodasTable

Thank goodness I found this before the strawberries left the shelves at the grocery store! We went crazy for this salad. It is perfect to serve with a company dish and easy enough to make ahead for work. This is about the best salad I have eaten, and I eat different ones all the time. I may throw in come goat cheese and almonds next time to change it up!

 

Review by Valerie

I made my own raspberry dressing and served it over this superb salad medley of fruits, veggies and nuts, and we loved the meld of flavors and all the great textures. My husband told me I could make this for him every day and he would be a happy camper. It's that good!

 

Review by DebbieLovesDesserts

This is a very good salad! We especially enjoyed having it with the fresh strawberries of the season. Since my husband doesn’t care for mandarin oranges, I used red grapes instead. We really like how all the flavors of this salad came together. The crunch of the glazed pecans and red onions in the salad, along with the sweetness of all the fruit, topped with Feta and the slightly tangy taste of the Raspberry Vinaigrette made a tasty and enjoyable salad. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Linda!
