I made this salad with blue cheese, craisins, toasted pecans and champagne vinaigrette several years ago and it was a huge hit. I love serving it at the holidays because it adds so much color to the plate!
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 10 min
Ingredients (Add desired amounts of each based on guests):
Blue Cheese (You can substitute feta cheese and it’s just as yummy)
Girard’s Champagne Vinaigrette
Preparing Salad with Blue Cheese, Craisins, Toasted Pecans and Champagne Vinaigrette:
Spray a small skillet with nonstick cooking spray (optional). Heat over medium low heat. Add pecans and toast them, stirring often, for about 5 minutes. Keep a close eye so they don’t burn. Transfer to a small bowl to let them cool.
Place lettuce in a serving bowl. Add craisins to the lettuce, followed by the cheese and cooled pecan halves. Add dressing and toss!
