Strawberry, Feta and Sugared Pecan Salad

As I have mentioned many times, I really don't plan much when it comes to my recipes.  Sometimes they flop...but at Easter and a recent dinner with friends, I put together a salad that I will make from now on for special occasions.  It's simple, pretty, and is over the top good.  My health conscious oldest daughter says I need to find a lower calorie dressing...I'll try...but overall sometimes a little sugar is a pretty good thing!

I hope your family and friends enjoy it as much as we did.  You can substitute cherry tomatoes for the strawberries.





Strawberry, Feta and Sugared Pecan Salad

8 - 10 cups of a mixed green salad mixture

8 - 10 strawberries, sliced 1/4 inch thick

1 package, 1/2 cup of sugared pecans or 'Pecan Pie Pecans' that I found in my local grocery store on the top shelf by all the nuts

1 - 4 ounce package of Herb Feta Cheese, crumbles

1 bottle of Raspberry Hazelnut Vinaigrette

Start by placing 2 - 3 cups salad in a bowl.  Add 1/3 Herb Feta Cheese, 1/3 sliced strawberries, and 1/3 sugared pecans.  Continue to layer two more times in the same order.
I highly recommend the Pecan Pie Pecans.  They are a new favorite of mine.

***You may also substitute cherry tomatoes instead of the strawberries.  Enjoy!
