Aunt Chris’ Holiday Salad

Published on June 8, 2011

Aunt Chris made this as the first course to a family Thanksgiving dinner and it was wonderful!

If you want to use fresh peaches, peel and slice the peaches and blend two slices (in place of the juice) along with the rest of the salad dressing ingredients in a blender until smooth.

Candied Pecans

Ingredients

Instructions

Heat maple syrup in a sauté pan until bubbly. Add nuts and salt and cook until dry, about 5 minutes. Use medium heat so it won’t burn. Three minutes will make them glazed and in about 5 minutes you should begin to see crystals and the nuts will separate and be candied. Transfer to a plate and let cool. Store in the refrigerator.
