I don’t always like to eat “kid food” for lunch, so I’m always looking for something a little more adult I can pull together. I found this pack of honey roasted pecans in the salad dressing isle of my grocery store and wanted to give them a try.

And guess what? They were yummy, and the perfect topping for just about any salad!

Ingredients:

  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Strawberries, washed and sliced
  • Feta cheese crumbles
  • Honey roasted pecans
  • Balsamic vinaigrette dressing

I typically just toss whatever I have on hand in my salads, and I was pleased with this combination. It is light and delicious, and great for moms who don’t have a lot of time on their hands.

Directions:

Tear up the lettuce, then top with the strawberries, nuts, and feta. Drizzle on some balsamic vinaigrette or your favorite dressing, and enjoy a yummy lunch.

 

Easy Balsamic Vinaigrette Recipe:

  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • Optional: add 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard for a little bit of spice.

Mix ingredients in a mason jar and shake it until blended well. Store your dressing in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.

Hope you enjoy!

    Yum! I’ve been on a salad kick lately, and while my husband has jumped on board, he is wayyy less adventurous with his toppings!
