  • 2 tablespoons cane sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 1/2 cup raw pecan halves
  • 2 Bosc or other firm pears
  • 1 red apple such as Fuji or Pink Lady, peeled if desired and thinly sliced
  • 1 green apple such as Granny Smith or Pippin, peeled if desired and thinly sliced
  • 4 cups field greens or any baby greens
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup crumbled blue cheese or feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, more or less to taste
  • 2 tablespoons pear or raspberry vinegar, more or less to taste
  • Fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper



Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Spoon sugar and cinnamon into a large bowl or plastic bag. Mix well and set aside. Place egg white in a separate bowl, whisk until frothy, and add pecans. Toss to coat completely. Add pecans to cinnamon-sugar and toss well to coat all pecans. Spread them on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow them to cool, breaking them up with a spatula.

Meanwhile, toss pears, apples, greens, onion slices and cheese in a large serving bowl. Add pecans when cooled.

In a smaller bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Drizzle over salad, toss to combine and serve immediately.
