For our recent monthly Diners' Club gathering, my assignment was the salad course (to accompany the hostess' Chicken Parmesan). I thought, hmmm, something sweet to balance the salt of the main course, so I just threw together a few of my favorite things, and WOW. For the dressing, I used a blend of two commercial dressings---Brianna's "American Classic" + "Creamy Balsamic". For the caramelized pecans, do a search on this site---many good recipes.
- Wash and spin greens, chill until crisped.
- Put goat cheese in freezer to firm for about 20 minutes, then pinch into 1/2" "blobs".
- Toss everything together, then add favorite vinaigrette!
