I think this would have been great without the sour cream or just reduced. I added craisins and I used this recipe Candied Pecans for the pecans. I also drained off a bunch of the dressing as I thought there was too much or maybe my apples just weren't big enough. I also added a bit more honey and a little bit of apple pie spice to try and fix the overwhelming sour cream flavor. I think if you added chicken to this it would be great too. Update: Better the next day and with 1-2 chicken breasts shredded up to soak up some of the dressing.

*Made for Photo Forum- April 2010- Soups, Salads and Sandwiches event * Great salad. Crunch from the apples and nicely balanced with the taste and texture of the toasted pecans. A lovely sweet and creamy dressing to go with it. Something a little different to your regular garden salads or coleslaw. WIll definitely make this one again :) Photo to be posted also
