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 (or sub in shredded parmesan)
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.
