    “This is a different and yummy salad dressing. Prep time includes toasting the pecans.”


  • 1/2 cupextra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cupred wine vinegar
  • 10pecan halves, toasted
  • 2tablespoonsbrown sugar
  • 2clovesgarlic, peeled and halved
  • Directions

  • Combine all ingredients in food processor and process until mixture is smooth.
  • Chill before serving; makes enough to dress one large salad.
  • I recommend a salad of romaine lettuce, orange slices (fresh or tinned mandarins), sliced green onions and perhaps some thinly sliced raw mushrooms.
  • Reviews

  • “This dressing is great!Served it with spinach, strawberries, goat cheese and pecans.Hubby and I both loved it!We will make it again when we have guests over.”

  • “Yum!I did this 1 part vinegar to 1 part olive oil, but kept the other proportions the same.I mixed this up in the blender instead of the food processor.It came out very creamy and tasty, a nice departure from our usual vinegar & oil.Will make again!”

  • “This was really different, but tasty!If you are looking for something a little different and sweet, try it.I used it on a plain salad of romaine and onion slices.”

  • “I’ve made this twice. Obviously because I really like it.My food processor did not fully mince the garlic so I would recommend mincing the cloves rather than just cutting them in half. I could offer no other suggestions for this recipe.It is a very well balanced flavored salad dressing.”
