Apple, Pecan & Feta Salad
This Apple, Pecan and Feta Lettuce salad is a perfect winter salad. Dijon vinaigrette is the perfect contrast to the sweet apples and pecans.
Servings: 8 servings
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup pecan halves
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 16 cups romaine, spinach, or a blend of your favorite lettuces
- 3 ripe apples diced
- 1 cup feta cheese crumbles
- Dijon Vinaigrette
In a heavy skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Toast the pecans for a few minutes and then sprinkle with the sugar and salt. Cook one more minute. Watch carefully so they don't burn. Allow them to cool on paper towels.
Place the torn lettuce in a salad bowl, top with cooled pecans, diced pears and blue cheese. Dress the salad immediately before serving.
