Strawberry Pecan Salad

Doesn't this salad look delicious? All my favorite things all together on one plate...Perfect meal in one that can and should be made on those hot summer afternoons. With few home made breadsticks and a glass of iced tea...just perfect! 
Ingredients
    For the Salad:
  • 1 cup Fisher Nuts Pecan Halves
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 12 oz package Romaine lettuce, chopped
  • 8 oz fresh strawberries, halved
  • 4 oz fresh blueberries
  • 2 oz goat cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup red onion, sliced (cut into small pieces)
  • 15 oz can Mandarin oranges, drained
  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked and diced
  • For the dressing:
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp poppyseeds
Instructions
  1. In a small skillet over medium heat, saute pecans with sugar. This will take several minutes for the sugar to dissolve as you stir the pecans. Set aside and cool.
  2. In a large bowl, combine romaine, berries, oranges, cheese and onion. Add diced chicken. Toss gently.
  3. In a small mason jar, combine dressing ingredients and shake with lid on.
  4. When ready to serve, add candied pecans and drizzle with dressing.
