Total Time: 15 minutes
Yields 8 side salads

8 cups mixed greens
1 cup raspberries
1 cup strawberries
1 cup blackberries
1 cup blueberries
½ cup cinnamon pecans (see below)
⅛ cup goat cheese crumbles

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing
¼ cup white wine vinegar
½ cup raspberries
1½ Tbsp honey
1½ Tbsp olive oil
¼ tsp salt
⅛ tsp fresh ground pepper

Cinnamon Pecans
½ cup pecans, coarsely chopped
1 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

1. Prepare vinaigrette dressing by placing dressing ingredients in a blender and blending until smooth.

2. Prepare cinnamon pecans by tossing nuts in a skillet over medium heat.  Add sugar and continue to stir pecans until the sugar is melted.  Sprinkle cinnamon over the pecans and remove from heat.  Immediately place pecans on a piece of foil to cool; pecans will burn if they are left in the skillet.

3. Wash and dry the berries and greens.  Toss berries, cinnamon pecans and goat cheese over the mixed greens.  Top with the vinaigrette dressing.
