Strawberry Spinach Salad with Candied Pecans is a delicious salad that pairs perfectly with just about anything!
Prep Time:5 minutes
Cook Time:5 minutes
Total Time:10 minutes
Yield:4 to 6 servings 1x
2 tbsp salted butter
1 cup pecan halves
2 tbsp brown sugar
6 oz baby spinach leaves
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries, stems removed
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese (or feta cheese if desired)
balsamic vinaigrette (I used Litehouse dressing for this salad)
Melt the butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Toss in the pecans and brown sugar, stirring to coat. Cook over medium heat until the sugar begins to caramelize (about 3 minutes). Spread out pecans on a wax paper lined baking sheet to cool.
In your salad bowl layer the spinach leaves, strawberries, goat cheese and pecans. Don’t pour dressing on salad until ready to serve. Enjoy!
