PLEASE NOTE: The Reality TV World Message Boards are filled with desperate attention-seekers pretending to be one big happy PG/PG13-rated family. Don't be fooled. Trying to get everyone to agree with you is like herding cats, but intolerance for other viewpoints is NOT welcome and respect for other posters IS required at all times. Jump in and play, and you'll soon find out how easy it is to fit in, but save your drama for your mama. All members are encouraged to read the complete guidelines. As entertainment critic Roger Ebert once said, "If you disagree with something I write, tell me so, argue with me, correct me--but don't tell me to shut up. That's not the American way."

"Assorted Greens with Cinnamon Dusted Pecans and Feta"
Posted by qwertypie on 12-17-10 at 01:35 PM
Ingredients:
Cinnamon Dusted Pecans
1 tablespoon (15 mL) sugar
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) cinnamon
1 tablespoon (15 mL) butter or margarine
3/4 (187 mL) cup pecan halves

Combine sugar and cinnamon; set aside. Melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add pecans and stir constantly until pecans are lightly toasted, about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat and immediately add cinnamon-sugar mixture. Stir well to mix. Pour onto a foil-lined tray. Cool completely. Can be stored in airtight container for up to two weeks.

Raspberry Vinaigrette
2/3 cup (166 mL) frozen, unsweetened raspberries
1/4 cup (62.5 mL) water
1/4 cup (62.5 mL) red wine vinegar (I used a little more)
1/2 cup (125 mL) light or golden corn syrup
1 1/2 (7.5 mL)teaspoons ground mustard
1/2 (125 mL)- 1 cup (250 mL) vegetable oil (the recipe called for 1 cup, but I found the vinaigrette not 'zingy' enough)
1 1/2 teaspoons chives (optional)
dash black pepper
dash salt (optional)

Combine raspberries, water, vinegar, corn syrup and ground mustard in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
Gradually add oil. Stir in chives, pepper and salt. Chill until ready to serve.

Salad
5 ounces salad greens
Interesting veggies and/or fruit
2/3 cup (166 mL) crumbled feta cheese (we had a lovely sheep's feta which would have been perfect, but the rotten qwertylings got into it, so we were stuck with run-of-the-mill feta)
Fresh raspberries/blackberries optional

Combine salad greens with feta cheese. Top with fresh raspberries, if desired. Drizzle with Raspberry Vinaigrette and top with Cinnamon-Dusted Pecans. Reserve remaining vinaigrette for another meal.
