Stylin’ Salad

Salad is not a meal, it’s a style. (Fran Lebowitz, author & public speaker)

I have to say that Fran has a point. Salads are all about style and they can make or break a meal. I love “the look” of a salad, especially when there is colour involved… but nothing outranks taste and this salad delivers on all counts.

Roasted pepper and pecan salad


Mixed greens (any type or style you like)

Red, yellow & orange peppers, roasted with salt, pepper & olive oil, until tender. Slice into strips.

1 cup roasted pecans

Goat cheese or feta cheese, depending on your preference

Avocado (optional)

Dressing: Mix 1/4 cup olive oil with 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 2 Tsp. ground mustard & 2 Tbsp. maple syrup. Pour over salad and toss.

Serve either as an appetizer or an accompaniment to your meal. Freshly warmed Focaccia bread is a nice side as well. Pour a glass of your favourite wine and enjoy!
