    A favourite combination at our house. I use crumbled blue cheese and I don't bother to toast the pecans, I just throw them on raw; it still tastes great. Also, fresh blueberries work instead of the cranberries. And a surprising range of dressings go well with this salad. We have also used creamy ranch, blue cheese, poppy seed, and Balsamic.

    This is a great recipe. I also recommend using the raspberry vinaigrette dressing instead of the Italian. A perfect salad to serve in early fall.
