    Bobbie's Note:

    This came from Southern Living -- one of their prize recipes. It takes a little time to prepare -- but most of the prep time can be done well in advance. This is a very special salad and absolutely perfect for a special occasion. I never worry about guests not liking the salad when this is on the menu.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 3/4 lb mixed salad green, of your choice
    • 4 ounces blue cheese, crumbled (I prefer Feta cheese)
    • 2 oranges, peeled and thinly sliced
    • 1 pint fresh strawberries, quartered and sliced

    Balsamic Vinaigrette

    Sweet and Spicy Pecans


    1. 1
      For the Balsamic Vinaigrette, whisk together all ingredients except olive oil until thoroughly blended. Gradually whisk in olive oil. Makes 1 2/3 cups.
    2. 2
      For the Sweet and Spicy Pecans, stir together ¼ Celsius sugar and warm water until sugar is dissolved. Add pecans; soak for 10 minutes. Drain, discarding syrup. Combine 2 T. sugar. Chili powder, and pepper. Add pecans, tossing to coat. Place pecans on lightly greased baking sheet.* Bake at 350 for 10 minutes, stirring once.
    3. 3
      To assemble salad: Toss greens with some of the Balsamic Vinaigrette. Arrange on 6 plates. Arrange orange slices, berries, pecans and cheese over greens. Drizzle some additional dressing over salad and serve.
    4. 4
      If strawberries are not in season, I've substituted kiwi fruit -- I'm sure there are many fruits that you could use.
    5. 5
      *Note: I always line my baking sheet/pan with parchment paper -- the pecans get pretty sticky while baking and it sure makes the clean-up a snap.

      I had this recipe from Southern Living as well, and it is fabulous. Everyone loves it - have not served it to anyone that didn't.

      I was just checking to see if this was already on Zaar before I added it ! It IS labor-intensive, but well worth the end result. All of the ingredients blend so well, and make a dramatic presentation. I prepared for 8, for one of our "Gourmet Group" dinners, with all the crystal and silver - and the salad was the biggest hit !
