One of the Best Salads Ever

As you can tell from my infrequent posting, I’m busy! But I just had to share this salad with you. It’s seriously one of the best salads I have ever had in my life. I found this combination on the internet and just modified it a bit.

What you’ll need for the salad:

*Romaine Lettuce
*Pear
*Green Onions
*Caramelized Pecans
*Goat Cheese (or Blue Cheese)

I caramelized my own pecans, which means I put 1/4 Cup of Sugar in a pan with 1/2 Cup of Pecans and stirred them over medium heat.

When they became all glossy and beautiful, I put them out on some parchment paper to dry.

Then, I tore the romaine in to pieces and chopped my pear.

And some green onion.

Once I had all the main ingredients ready, I prepped the dressing. You’ll need:

Ingredients

* 1/3 C EVOO
* 3 T Red Wine Vinegar
* 1 1/2 t White Sugar
* 1 1/2 t Coarse Ground Mustard
* 1 Clove Garlic
* Fresh Ground Black Pepper to Taste

Mix it together by putting the lid on your plastic container and shaking it like a Polaroid (ha.). Then, just mix everything together and experience one of the best salads of your life!!

The week I discovered this salad, I think I ate it about five times. No kidding. The crunchy, sweet, tangy, light, fresh taste of this green meal will blow your mind.
