Instructions

  • Add pecans to a medium dry skillet set over medium heat. Toast and toss occasionally for 5 minutes or until fragrant and nuts are lightly toasted.

To make the dressing:

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all the dressing ingredients except for the olive oil. In a thin, steady stream, slowly add the olive oil, whisking all the while, until an emulsion starts to form. At this point you can add olive oil in a larger stream until it is completely incorporated.
  • To a large bowl, add some off the vinaigrette. Add salad, toss gently and plate.
  • Top salad with pecans, red onion, and blue cheese.
