    Salad

    • 1 bag mixed baby greens
    • gorgonzola, crumbled (as much as you like)
    • balsamic vinaigrette, bottled or homemade
    • 1 red pear, cored and sliced horizontally

    Caramelized pecans

    Directions:

    1. 1

      When butter is melted, add pecans and sugar, stir to combine.

      Remove pecans with a slotted spoon and spread in a single layer on a sheet of lightly buttered foil.
    5. 5
      Cool completely and break up into pieces as needed.

      Place sliced pears in a fan shape on side of plate.
    8. 8
      Serve immediately.

      Oh this is really nice. Simple (I think) yet elegant. Just be careful of the sugar process so that it doesn't burn. The flavors go together really well. I just made a simple vinegrette using some good balsalmic vinegar I had.
