-------

I came up with this recipe after visiting the Longhorn Steakhouse in my area. It was sooo delishious I had to have it EVERY DAY!! So I set out to recreate it. This is my version. I dropped out the candied pecans they put on their's... and the dressign they use has yogurt in it... It is... YUM! But less expensive than their's is.

Enjoy!!!

----------

PS

Feta has a LOT of salt in it, you can easily substitute a healthier cheese - I stayed with Feta because I want it to be a treat for me... Feta has a strong flavour that only I enjoy in my household.

----------

PSS

As someone noted, red onion - yes. Longhorn does put thinly sliced red onion in their salad... but.. I cannot eat raw onions - it bothers me too much... so I omitted that as well... LOL


---
Update:
4 of my kids like Feta now. GRR! So I have honed this recipe down, to make it healthier for the kids. They all love the salad, so, I have changed Feta over to either cubed cheese or crumbled cheese... sometimes I use strips of american cheese, 1 slice for each person's salad, that I have cut into strips... Or sometimes I use 1 TBSP finely shredded cheese per person. The kids that like this recipe are: 4, 7, 14, 16 ... My almost 18 year old don't like salad. Her boyfriend loves this salad too though!!

    It has a lot of fruit which is ok if you aren't diabetic. I cut 2 of the fruits and delete the cheese altogether. It doesn't lose too much of the flavor that way. Adding chopped apple and the mandarin orange to be wonderful and the apple adds the crunch factor back in when deleting the nuts. - 5/13/09

    This was lovely. I've tried it twice now. I did add back in the toasted pecans, (not candied) and the second time, I added fresh spinach and strips of grilled chicken and whisked some Greek yogurt into the vinaigrette...more calories, but good...thanks! - 5/11/09

    This sounds good. I have come to find I love salads with fruit. However, I can not stand the smell of Ken's Raspberry Walnut salad dressing. The taste is ok but I don't think I'll buy it again because of the taste. - 5/13/09

    It looks very tasty. I may leave out the grapes to cut down on th sugar. I might add a little chicken to increase protein and call it lunch. Like the rasberry vinaigrette not sure about one with walnut flavor so will probably use what I have. - 5/21/09

    I eat a salad that is similar, but it only has the strawberries. I also add thinly sliced red onion. I love the flavor. - 5/11/09

    Hi. This is Longhorn's description of their salad: Strawberry Pecan Salad -
    Mixed field greens topped with fresh strawberries, grapes, mandarin oranges, crisp candied pecans, red onion, feta cheese, and tangy raspberry vinaigrette. I omit the raw onion cos I dont like raw onions... LOVE IT!! =)
