Last night at my second job (for those of you who don’t know… I cook for a family in Westlake), I made this amazingly good salad! I wanted to share with everyone because it is so simple and healthy! Annndddd it tastes so good 🙂
Add a little grilled chicken/fish/beef on top and you have yourself a 20 minute meal! Enjoy.
Toasted Pecan & Blueberry Salad w/ Feta
1 bag spring mix
1 cup blueberries, fresh
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (if following paleo diet, omit the feta)
1 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped
1 small shallot, finely diced
1 tsp dijon mustard (I happened to have a passion fruit/habanero mustard that I used instead 😉 )
2 tsp balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp honey
Over medium-low heat toast pecans for around 5 minutes. The pecans are almost done when you start smelling them.
Chop the pecans and set aside. (you will want to eat all the pecans while chopping, trust me!)
Whisk together all the dressing ingredients. Let sit for at least 15 minutes.
