for the salad:


  1. For the pecans: Preheat oven to 225°. Place pecans on a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast for 5 minutes. Then, place pecans in a ziploc bag and add the syrup, sugar and salt. Seal the bag, then shake until pecans are coated. Pour pecans out onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and roast pecans for 20 minutes. Allow pecans to cool before adding to the salad.
  2. For the dressing: melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring frequently until butter is slightly brown. Pour butter into a bowl and set aside, allowing it to cool.
  3. To assemble: place lettuce in a bowl and top it with the apple, goat cheese, candied pecans, and then drizzle a SMALL amount of brown butter over top. A little bit goes a long way!
  4. Enjoy!


*You’re probably going to have leftover butter and that’s ok! Use it on this brussels sprouts salad or whatever you want.
