For those of you with a sweet tooth, this is a great way to incorporate some sweetness into a typically savory meal. The candied pecans add a boost of protein to your salad, and also make a great addition to trail mixes. Add the dressing and pecans to spinach, sliced red onion, and any other veggies you like. Mix well and enjoy!
Strawberry Poppy Seed Dressing
1 lb strawberries
1/2 cup Maison Orphée grapeseed oil
1/4 cup+ raw honey
2 tsp poppy seeds
1 tsp pink Himalayan salt
Blend all ingredients except oil. Once smooth, slowly pour in oil while blender is still running.
1 egg white
3/4 cup organic light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp pink Himalayan salt
With a hand mixer, blend egg white till foamy. In a separate bowl combine remaining ingredients. Stir in egg white. Grease cookie sheet and spread out nut mixture. Bake at 275 F for 45 mins.
Chef’s Note: For a chocolaty treat add in some raw cacao powder before baking — makes a great snack too!
