Steph's Pick | Green Salad with Apple, Feta, Pecans and Balsamic Dressing

Jan 14, 2011

I'm always on the look-out for new salad recipes to try. I know, I know... I can easily just make something up on my own....greens, cheese, nuts, dressing and fruit...but for some reason I always feel more confident in a recipe rather than my own ability to create something.

So thanks to PW's Tasty Kitchen (and Twinks - recipe sharer) I tried this INCREDIBLE salad this week and LOVED it.

Here it is all for all of you salad lovers out there...

Green Salad with Apple, Feta, Pecans and Balsamic Dressing

1/2 cups pecan pieces
2 Tbsp sugar
Baby Spinach
1 head romaine lettuce, torn
1 whole granny smith apple, cored and very thinly sliced
4 ounces crumbled feta
1/2 cups red onion, finely chopped
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
3 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 Tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper

Place nuts in a medium skillet with 2 tbsp sugar. Cook over medium-high heat until nuts are coated and brown, stirring constantly (about 5 min); set aside.
Toss salad greens, apples and cheese.
Combine dressing ingredients in a blender and blend well. Pour over salad just before serving.
Sprinkle with candied nuts.

How do you keep the apples from turning brown?? :) I know, soak them in lemon juice, but then they taste like dining service :) Share your secret...

This looks delicious--I want to go make one now! I'm pregnant too and (in addition to some less good nibbles) have been loving salads.
