Ingredients

  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup and a pinch brown sugar
  • 1 cup whole raw pecans
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons aged-white balsamic vinegar
  • Sea salt and freshly ground white pepper, to taste
  • 6 cups loosely packed mesclun greens
  • 2 cups strawberries, halved

Directions

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a big bowl, beat together the egg white and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Add the raw pecans and stir until the nuts are completely coated. Transfer the pecans onto a baking sheet in a single, even layer. Bake for 30 minutes. In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the extra-virgin olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, pinch of brown sugar, sea salt, and white pepper, to taste. Cover the jar and shake vigorously for 30 seconds to emulsify. In a bowl, toss the mesclun greens, strawberries, and candied pecans with the vinaigrette.
