*Pecan-Grape Salad*

Hello everyone! Today I want to share a Pecan-Grape Salad recipe with you.This salad is good with about 1 1/2 cups of ham, cut into small squares or 1 pound of bacon cooked crisp and chopped, added to it. This is good for those pot lucks or a brunch with your friends. If you want to cut some of the fat out, use a light mayonnaise, you can cut some of the sugar down by using the low sugar Orange Marmalade too. Also, you can use walnuts instead of pecans or any other type of nuts that you may prefer. Well, I took enough of your time. here is the recipe. Enjoy!
