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.

    Perfect for a summer BBQ!! Also the candied pecans make a great snack on their own! Especially around Christmas!!

    Wonderful combination of flavors! Tip: don't pour the extra candying mixture over the pecans on the baking sheet, they will be hard to break up after. Also, I substituted regular balsamic vinegar since it was what I had on hand.
