    sugarpea's Note:

    This is good anytime, of course. I'm guessing the salad got it's name from the beautiful reds and greens in it. If watercress is available, don't leave it out; it adds a lot. Prepare the pecans and salad dressing a day or two before and it will all go together quickly.

      Excellent mix of tastes and textures. Made it for Christmas dinner and everyone loved it. I will be making this one again!

      very tasty. I ran out of time at the last minute and had to throw it together out of what I had on hand - so I didn't make it quite as directed. (missed out the shallots altogether. used brown sugar instead of corn syrup, used a mixed pack of salad leaves, and used feta instead of blue cheese & honey instead of maple syrup). However, even with those changes the guests raved about it..

      Great salad. I served for Christmas dinner, and it was loved by everyone. I used red onion instead of the shallots, and romaine instead of the bibb. I also subed feta cheese for the blue cheese, as I dont care for blue cheese. And I doubled the amount of dried cranberries, since I love them. It was nice to have a light tasting salad to go with a heavy meal.
