This colorful, refreshing salad makes use of summer produce at its peak, and the variety of ingredients, the sweet and spicy pecans, and the fresh tarragon dressing make this something special. Adjust the proportions to your personal taste. I find the more colors in the salad, the more kids like it.
You can find Cajun spice mixture in the spice aisle of your favorite grocery store. Any variety works here. If you don't love tarragon, substitute parsley, cilantro, or dill. —Chef Cris
