This salad is light and refreshing without being overly sweet.
  • 1-2 cups unpeeled and cored chopped apple (Honey Crisp or Golden Delicious)
  • ½-1 cup diced celery
  • ½-1 cup halved seedless grapes
  • ½-1 cup packaged Craisins
  • 1 small can of mandarin oranges, drained
  • ½-1 cup teriyaki candied pecans (coarsely chopped or cut in quarters)
  • 2-3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 Tbsp teriyaki sauce
  • 1 package shredded lettuce
  • 1 to 2 Tbsp light raspberry vinaigrette
Teriyaki-Glazed Pecans
  1. Combine the pecan pieces, brown sugar, water and teriyaki sauce in a pan and sauté over medium heat.
  2. Let the liquid boil down as the pecans are heating.
  3. Let the candied pecans cool before adding them to the salad mixture.
  4. Combine the chopped apples, celery, grapes, Craisins, mandarin oranges, cooled pecans and raspberry vinaigrette.
  5. When ready to serve, toss the fruit mixture with the shredded lettuce.
  6. Leftovers keep better if the lettuce is stored separately. Once the salad is tossed with the vinaigrette, the lettuce will get soggy when stored overnight.
