Pear Feta Salad

Mmmmmm I love me a good chopped salad. This is officially my new favorite salad. It has just the right amount of salty, sweet, and acid for me. And I didn't feel guilty having two heaping bowls full for dinner.


Salad:
1 head red lettuce, chopped
2 pears, cored and chopped
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, chopped
~1/2 c. feta cheese

Candied Pecans:
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. pecans

Mustard Vinaigrette:
1/3 c. olive oil
3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1.5 tsp. sugar
1.5 tsp. mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
sprinkle of pepper

1. In a small pan over medium heat, combine sugar and pecans.


2. Stir until sugar has melted and cartelized the pecans.


3. Set aside on wax paper to cool.


4. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt and pepper. Set aside.


5. In a large bowl, combine lettuce, pears, avocado, and feta.
6. Once the pecans are cool, chop and add to the salad.


7. Drizzle with dressing and stuff face!
