Eloise's Salad

Pictured without dressing
Mixed greens
Pears, sliced
Caramelized pecans–roast in frying pan with brown sugar
Gorgonzola cheese
Raspberry Vinaigrette dressing

Toss all ingredients together and enjoy!
More detailed directions for caramelizing pecans:
1 1/2 T butter
3 T brown sugar
1 1/2 cups pecan halves
1 T cinnamon

Melt butter in small skillet over medium heat and add sugar, cinnamon, and nuts.  Stir constantly until sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes.  Pour nuts onto sheet of aluminum foil and let cool about 15 minutes.

*I love this salad!  Everything fits so perfectly together.
