Mixed baby greens
Maple-vanilla candied nuts*
Dressing of choice (we love Trader Joe's Champagne Pear Vinaigrette)
Make the candied nuts.*
Dice apple, and thinly slice red onion.
Lay out the mixed greens on a plate, and top with remaining ingredients.
*For the candied nuts:
2 cups nuts (I used walnut pieces)
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp. salt
Heat a small skillet over med-high for 1 minute.
Add all ingredients.
Stir frequently until syrup is caramelized, about 3-4 minutes.
Remove from heat and let cool.
