"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."
