Maple Salad

Ingredients for dressing: 
2 tablespoons Maple Syrup
2 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon Mustard
6 tablespoons Vegetable Oil
2 cloves garlic (minced)
Cracked Pepper

Instructions for dressing:
Add all ingredients together and stir.

For pecans:
½ cup Pecans
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Preheat oven to 350.  Stir pecans into maple syrup.  Take out of oven and immediately remove from pan onto parchment paper.  Let sit for about 5 minutes.

For Salad
1 head Romaine lettuce (or a bag)
¼ cup Gorgonzola
Maple syrup pecans

Instructions: Pour about half of the maple syrup dressing onto salad.  Toss and let sit while you prepare the pecans. Once the pecans have set, pour them over salad along with the gorgonzola.  Toss again and serve.  

I am not a huge salad person, but this stuff is addictive.  The dressing alone is what makes it.  See you tomorrow!!

Much Love,
