Once again, I have an amazing recipe from my sister-in-law Kim. That girl can cook! This salad has become quite the staple at all of our anniversary parties and baby showers and family picnics. It sounds very time consuming but it's really not. So here you go folks...If your butt gets bigger, it's not because of me...you can blame Kim for this very addicting salad.
Strawberry Pecan Salad
1 bag spring mix salad
1/2 square container of fresh strawberries, sliced
1/2 c to 1 cup candied pecans (recipe below)
Mozzarella cheese (diced)
10 or so grape or cherry tomatoes (optional)
1/4 to 1/2 chopped avocado (optional)
Classic French Vinaigrette (with added honey) (recipe below)
Jaime's quick tip: If you buy string cheese in bulk, like I do, just cut up string cheese for this salad. It's makes it easy especially if you are making a small salad.
I usually make this for a large crowd so I buy the spring mix in the big rectangle plastic container at Costco. I then adjust the recipe for the bigger salad. It's really based on how much you like of the different items you put in. I usually double the recipe of the dressing if I make a large batch like that.
Classic French Viniagrette
