Directions

  1. Glazed Maple Pecans: Heat a saucepan over medium-high heat until warm. Add pecan halves, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt.
  2. Cook for 2 or 3 minutes while stirring, being careful not to let them burn. You'll know they are ready when they smell good. Transfer to a plate to cool.
  3. Dressing: Whisk together oil, rice vinegar, soy sauce, lime juice, grated ginger, cilantro, and brown sugar, in a small bowl.
  4. Salad: Right before serving, mix half of the dressing with the salad greens. Divide on plates. Arrange chicken and apple slices over bed of greens. Sprinkle with raisins, carrot, and glazed pecans and drizzle with remaining dressing to taste.
