½ c. walnut halves
3 T white sugar
3 cups mixed greens
½ c. craisins or dried cherries
½ c. feta cheese
2 green onions, chopped, tops and all
1 T capers or chopped Greek olives (optional)
Whisk together equal amounts of balsamic vinegar and olive oil with a pinch of salt and black pepper to make a balsamic vinaigrette.
Candied walnuts: Place the walnuts and sugar in a skillet over medium heat (do not burn). Stir until sugar melts and is light brown (about 1 minute). Stir to coat walnuts, about 1 more minute. Remove from heat and spread on foil to cool, then break apart if necessary.
Assemble and toss salad ingredients, top with candied walnuts and drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette.
Makes two salads.
