STRAWBERRY CANDIED PECAN SALAD

We are still getting fresh strawberries in California, so this is a nice, fast salad as a holiday side dish…or in the early spring when the local ones start appearing again!

STRAWBERRY CANDIED PECAN SALAD

1 5 oz package baby greens, washed
3/4 cup sliced fresh strawberries
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup sliced red onions
1/4 cup coarsely chopped candied pecans
1/4 cup Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing

Combine all ingredients except dressing. Ross with dressing just before serving.

NOTE: If you want to candy the pecans yourself instead of buying them, combine nuts and 2 tablespoons sugar in a skillet and cook and stir on medium heat 5 minutes or until sugar is melted and evenly coats the pecans. This method can be used for any nut.
