    cookiedog's Note:

    This salad makes a wonderful lunch or light dinner. You can even make it vegetarian by omitting the chicken. The maple nuts take less than 5 minutes to make so the salad comes together very quickly.

    Maple Glazed Pecans

    Dressing

    Salad

    • 4 -6 cups mixed salad greens
    • 1/4 carrot, shredded
    • 1/2-1 cup shredded rotisserie-cooked chicken or 1/2-1 cup cooked chicken
    • 1/2 apple, sliced thin
    • 1 tablespoon golden raisin

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Glazed Maple Pecans: Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat until warm. Add pecan halves, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt.
    2. 2
      Cook for 2 or 3 minutes while stirring, being careful not to let them burn. You'll know they are ready when they smell good. Transfer to a plate to cool.
    3. 3
      Dressing: Whisk together oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, lime juice, grated ginger, cilantro, and brown sugar, in a small bowl.
    4. 4
      Salad: Right before serving, mix half of the dressing with the salad greens. Divide on plates. Arrange chicken and apple slices over bed of greens. Sprinkle with raisins, carrot, and glazed pecans and drizzle with remaining dressing to taste.

      Flavourful. Replaced maple syrup with regular syrup and a bit of brown sugar. Added a little extra brown sugar to the dressing too. Would maybe be good with a bit of cheese, or even some mandarin oranges when in season.

      I really enjoyed this salad. The texture of the apple and pecans are really nice. I did cut the oil in the dressing by half and do not feel this made much difference as I still had enough to dress the whole salad. I doubled the ginger due to personal preference. I found the dressing to be spot on with the tart/sweet flavours. I'll be using the idea of the maple pecans as a snack for the Xmas table.

      This was a very tasty salad, though the dressing was not as flavorful as it looked (although...I had to eliminate the cilantro since mine had gone bad in the fridge. :( )... I ended up doubling the amount of dressing and that helped. I wouldn't have thought to put apples or pecans in an asian salad, but the combination was actually really good! Thanks for giving us something new to try... good luck in RSC #10!
