Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
There is no doubt I am June's biological daughter as I love pecans as well. I originally found this in a Sunkist lemon ad in a magazine in 1977. Mom liked it a lot too. Adding toasted pecans gives it even more pizzaazz. I get a lot of compliments on this salad. Ask Joleen, it's one she especially likes.
