Man oh man you have GOT to try this salad. It’s my favorite to date. It’s from my favorite recipe book called “Favorites.” How’s that for a lot of “favorites.”
1/3 cup pecan pieces
2 tablespooons sugar
1/2 head green leaf lettuce, torn into pieces
1/2 head iceberg lettuce, torn into pieces
(I just omit the darn 1/2 stuff and use one head of romaine)
2 kiwis, peeled and sliced
1 cup strawberries, halved
1 avocado, chopped
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons sugar
zest and juice of 1 orange
zest and juice of 2 limes
(I cut this dressing recipe in half which is plenty!)
Carmelize pecans by mixing with sugar in small skillet over low heat until sugar melts. Spread on foil and cool, then break into pieces.
Combine dressing ingredients in a jar and shake well.
Toss salad ingredients together with pecan pieces, add dressing to coat and serve.
