  4. Top the lettuce with the chopped apple, cheese of your choice, dried cranberries, crumbled bacon, and pecans. Seve addtional dressing on the side as needed for taste. Seves 2-3.


For the sugared pecans: use 2 Tbsp butter, 1 cup pecan pieces and, 2 Tbsp brown sugar.  In a medium skillet,  melt the butter. Add in the pecans and stir to coat. Add in the brown sugar, stir to coat.  Cook for 2-5 minutes until pecans are well coated with the sugar. Line a cook sheet with parchment and pour out pecans to cool.
