This was a very tasty salad that I made for Christmas dinner and my husband actually commented on what a good-looking salad it was. I, too, used pecans (mainly because I had a two pound bag of 'em sitting around; I do like them but I'm sure walnuts would also be delicious) and I just bought a pre-made vinaigrette. As another reviewer stated, I only melted the sugar long enough for it to be glazed and dotted with bumpy sugary bits on them mostly out of laziness...it was taking too long to fully melt. VERY tasty. Had some nuts left over and could not stop popping them into my mouth. My only advice to you would be this: sugar that is in the process of melting is HOT. And it's STICKY. So if a nut flies out of your pan while you're stirring them, RESIST THE URGE to pick it up off the stove and throw it back in the pan. It WILL stick to your finger(s) and BURN them severely. I speak from experience. So please allow me to serve as an example of what not to do. Otherwise, thoroughly delightful.
