Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup pecans, halved
  • 1/2-ounce prosciutto, thinly sliced
  • 4 ounces spinach, stemmed, washed, and dried
  • 2 tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup your favorite salad dressing (recommended: Honey Dijon)
  • 2 tablespoons feta cheese, crumbled
    • Directions

      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

      Melt butter in a small saute pan over medium heat and add the sugar. Stir until sugar is melted and remove from heat. Stir in the pecans and transfer the mixture to a baking sheet. Bake for about 5 minutes until toasted. Lay the prosciutto slices on another baking sheet and bake for 2 to 3 minutes until the prosciutto is crispy.
