For Dressing:
1 tsp. salt
dash of pepper
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
dash of red pepper sauce
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
For Nuts:
1/2 cup pecan pieces
1 tablespoon plus 1 tsp. sugar
For Salad:
1 bag fresh spring mix
1 pear, soft
fresh parmesan cheese from block in thin slices

For dressing: mix ingredients in cruet and place in
refrigerator until ready to assemble salad.
For nuts: in a heavy saucepan put sugar on medium heat
stirring constantly until sugar begins to dissolve. Then add
nuts and continue stirring until sugar has melted and nuts are
coated. Then place in a small bowl until ready for salad. I
always double the nut recipe to save for another time. They
refrigerate well in a plastic ziploc bag.
For Salad: thinly slice pear, NOT wedge and place paper thin
slices along the edge of a large salad plate.
Then toss the greens with dressing in a separate bowl until
desired consistency. I add very little dressing and save the
remainder for another night -- just enough to coat. Then place
on salad plate inside pear ring. Top with shaved parmesan
and nuts.
