  • Place pecans into frying pan on high heat. Add sugar and stir just until sugar melts on pecans. Pour pecans onto lightly greased foil or other non stick surface.

Notes

*Naturally BARE Baked Crunchy Fuji & Reds Apple Chips are available at Kroger grocery stores and other supermarkets.
This dressing recipe makes about 1 ½ cups of dressing. You should need about ½ cup to toss with the salad. We make extra 'cause it takes some time to make and it's so good to have on hand. If you only want enough for the salad you can cut the recipe down.
Dressing will keep, if refrigerated in a convered container, about 2 weeks.
