Whip up a salad full of delicious surprises like smoky candied pecans and a bit of orange zest and allspice in the vinaigrette. We used Granny Smith apples, but your favorite variety will work also. Almost two full cups of creamy goat cheese makes a savory addition to this hearty salad. The greens are dressed with a vinaigrette of extra-virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, salt, orange zest, and ground allspice. After tossing the greens, drizzle with two tablespoons good-quality aged balsamic vinegar just before serving. While the assembly of this salad is relatively quick, preparing the candied pecans will take some time. Whisk egg white and sugar in a bowl until it’s frothy. Then, add pecans paprika, and salt. You’ll spread this mixture on a baking sheet and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. It will have to cool for another 30 minutes before they'll be ready to add to the salad.
