Do you love to eat or eat to live? I fall into the former category, but need to be watchful of calories. I love, love, love Pear Salad! You can make this into an elegant dinner salad by adding braised tofu, turkey or chicken slices. Besides a head of lettuce, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- In a skillet over medium heat, stir 1/4 cup of sugar together with the pecans. Continue stirring gently until “sugar” has blended and caramelized the pecans. Carefully transfer nuts onto waxed paper. Allow to cool, and break into pieces.
- For the dressing, blend oil, vinegar, 1 1/2 teaspoons “sugar”, mustard, chopped garlic, salt, and pepper.
