  • 2 cups strawberries, halved
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

    Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a big bowl, beat together egg whites and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Add raw pecans and stir until the nuts are completely coated. Transfer the pecans onto baking sheet in a single, even layer. Bake for 30 minutes.

    In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the extra-virgin olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, pinch of brown sugar, sea salt and white pepper to taste. Cover the jar and shake vigorously for 30 seconds to emulsify.

    In a bowl, toss the mesclun greens, strawberries, and candied pecans with vinaigrette.
