Summer Berry Pecan Salad
Yield: 1 serving (multiply as desired)
(printable recipe)

2 cups fresh baby spinach or spring mix
6 fresh strawberries, sliced
8-10 fresh blackberries
2 tablespoons sugared pecans, recipe below
Creamy poppyseed salad dressing

Layer spinach and berries into bowl and sprinkle with pecans. Drizzle with poppyseed dressing and toss to coat. Serve immediately. Enjoy!

Sugared Pecans
Yield: 1 1/2 cups

1 tablespoon butter
1 1/2 cups pecan halves
1/4 cup white sugar

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pecans and stir to coat well. Saute the pecans until they are fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar and continue stirring as the sugar melts and coats the nuts, about 5 minutes.

After the sugar has caramelized and the nuts have turned a slightly deeper brown, remove from the heat and immediately spread the pecans on a piece of parchment paper. Let them cool and then store in an airtight container until ready to use. Enjoy!

This Berry Pecan Salad is filled with fresh fruit, sugared almonds, and creamy poppyseed dressing, it's one of the season's best salads! Get the recipe at barefeetinthekitchen.com
