Mache greens (or whatever greens you may have on hand)
Sliced apples or pears (or citrus)
Dried cranberries
Crumbled feta cheese
Candied nuts*
Orange Raspberry Vinaigrette*

*recipe below

Candied nuts

2 cups of nuts (walnuts, pecans and almonds would work)
3/4 cup of white sugar
1/4 cup of water
1 teaspoon of butter (optional)

Sprinkle of cinnamon (optional)

Lightly grease a baking sheet. In a 1 quart glass measure, combine nuts, sugar, water, butter and cinnamon. Cook in microwave oven on high setting for 8 to 8 1/2 minutes until sugar has caramelized. (I cook on stove top, but am clueless of how long it cooks.) Stir several times during cooking. Pour out onto prepared baking sheet and separate into pieces. Let cool completely…store in airtight container.

Orange Raspberry Vinaigrette

3 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon raspberry vinegar (If you don’t have raspberry vinegar on hand, substitute white vinegar and fruit preserves.)
1/4 cup light or extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons snipped fresh chives (dried works too)
salt and pepper, to taste
