Fresh figs and peaches shine in this salad with marinated, toasted pecans, feta cheese and an herbed balsamic honey vinaigrette. Delicious and naturally gluten-free.



For the Pecans:

For the Salad:

  • 3 quartered figs
  • 1 sliced peach
  • 6 slices of turkey bacon, optional
  • 2 ounces of crumbled feta
  • 4 cups of spring mix salad greens
  • Basil leaves, for garnish


  1. For the Pecans: Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. Combine the pecans and 2 tablespoonfuls of the balsamic-honey vinaigrette. Allow to marinate in a bowl for 20 minutes while the oven is preheating.
  2. Place marinated pecans in a single layer on a baking sheet in the oven and toast for 15 minutes until just slightly crisped. Allow to cool. 
  3. For the Salad: place the spring greens onto a platter and arrange the figs, peaches and optional turkey bacon on top.
  4. Top off with the balsamic pecans and feta cheese. Garnish with basil sprigs or leaves.
  5. Serve with the balsamic dressing on the side, or dress the whole salad before serving.
