Winter Salad with Brown "Butter" Dressing // via Nosh and Nourish
greens (I used Earthbound Farm's Sweet Kale mix)
Peas (if frozen, be sure to thaw completely!)
NOW Foods' Honey-Roasted Pecans (crushed, or coarsely chopped)
Goat Cheese (optional )
NOW Foods' Coconut Oil infused with butter flavor (or sub regular butter)
Spicy Brown Mustard
WHITE Balsamic Vinegar
Soy Sauce (or sub coconut aminos)
In a large salad bowl, assemble your salad: greens, peas, cooked quinoa, crushed pecans, goat cheese, avocados, and clementines. Set it aside.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt your coconut oil and then add in remaining dressing ingredients: mustard, coconut sugar, vinegar, and soy sauce. Stir frequently for about 5 minutes until the sauce is completely melted. Use a whisk to make the color and consistency uniform.
Pour the dressing over the salad. Toss. And serve.
