*I buy my nuts pre-toasted, but you can toast them in a 400 degree oven until lightly golden brown. This only takes a few minutes, so watch them closely.
**While the dressing stands, it sometimes thickens a lot. If this happens, whisk it really well before adding to the salad. Once whisked, it should stay quite smooth
***Salad is best served immediately as it does dry out if your refrigerate it, due to the fruit in the dressing.
