Notes

This salad lasts and lasts in the fridge without any changes to the consistency. It is the perfect salad to make on Sunday and enjoy the entire week with a protein of choice!
To add another layer of flavor, roast and salt the pecans. I do this by heating a small frying pan over very high heat and then add a little coconut oil to the pan. Once the oil has just barely started to smoke, I remove from the burner and add in the pecans and a dash of sea salt. Stir the pecans a few times. You will know they are done when you can smell them.
