Invest in a salad spinner or allow the lettuce to dry completely after washing.
In fact, let all of the fruits dry as well. Adding less water to the salad will let the dressing shine.
You can slice the fruit and toast the pecans up to 3 days in advance, which makes prep time even easier.
Store chopped lettuce with a paper towel to help keep it crisp.
