Ingredients
  1. Mixed spring lettuce greens – romaine, red and green oak leaf, arugula, assorted lettuces
  2. Baby spinach greens
  3. Radicchio, julienned (It resembles red cabbage, but is a member of the chicory family. Totally different animal. Has a slightly bitter taste that pairs well with balsamic vinegar.)
  4. Basil and mint leaves, torn.
  5. Confetti mix of green, yellow, orange, and red peppers in a tiny dice
  6. Red onion, diced
  7. Candied pecans, recipe below
  8. Chèvre cheese, diced and rolled in a mix of chopped fresh parsley and freshly ground pepper
  9. Red and black grapes, halved
  10. Strawberries, thinly sliced
  11. Avocado, cubed and tossed in lime juice (for flavor and to prevent discoloration)
  12. CANDIED PECANS
  13. 1 TB unsalted butter
  14. 1 TB light brown sugar
  15. ½ cup pecans
  16. Pinch of kosher salt.

  18. ½ cup strawberries, chopped
  19. ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  20. 2 tsp sugar
  21. 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  22. 1 TB lemon juice
  23. Pinches of rosemary, thyme, and oregano
  24. ½ cup olive oil (I used Bertolli Extra Light Olive
  25. Oil, which doesn’t overpower any of the other flavors.)
  26. Pinch Kosher salt and a few grinds of pepper

  4. STEP 2: Spread out on wax paper. Let cool.
