Strawberry Spinach Salad with Candied Pecans


Strawberry Spinach Salad with Candied Pecans

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 6 oz baby spinach leaves
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries, stems removed
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese (or feta cheese if desired)
  • balsamic vinaigrette (I used Litehouse dressing for this salad)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Toss in the pecans and brown sugar, stirring to coat. Cook over medium heat until the sugar begins to caramelize (about 3 minutes). Spread out pecans on a wax paper lined baking sheet to cool.
  2. In your salad bowl layer the spinach leaves, strawberries, goat cheese and pecans. Don’t pour dressing on salad until ready to serve. Enjoy!
