“This recipe came from my mother. It is easy to make and looks/tastes incredible. You can use any kind of salad greens that you like, and you can substitute blue cheese for the feta if you prefer. I thought I would never have a recipe to share, since I get most of my new recipes from Zaar!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the sugared nuts. In a skillet, cook and stir the pecans in the butter until toasted - about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in 1/4 cup of sugar. Set aside to cool.
  2. Prepare the dressing. Pour the red wine vinegar, vegetable oil, parsley, garlic powder, 1 T of sugar, oregano, salt and pepper into a blender. Blend well until the ingredients are combined and the parsely is well processed.
  3. Toss the greens, sugared nuts, cranberries, onions, and cheese with the dressing. The dressing is pretty powerful, so use sparingly and adjust to taste. I found the proportions as listed to be just about right for our taste, but you may prefer less dressing.
  4. Serve immediately.
