Summer Salad

This salad is so simple and so tasty. I use this dressing ALL THE TIME, so it's good to have. This is fantastic with dinner on a hot summer night...very refreshing and delicious.

[Note: I am posting a lot this week, I know...Tod's working extra hours so I have the time. Don't feel pressure to keep up with my pace. You won't be able to, I'm just that fast...]

• Spring lettuce mix
• Cut up pears (I prefer pears but the original recipe called for sliced cucumbers with diced orange bell pepper instead...your choice)
• Crumbled feta cheese
• Sugar-toasted pecans (Two Tbs. sugar with a cup of pecans, stir constantly and heat on medium until sugar melts , then immediately remove and cool on plate)

• 1/2 cup olive oil
• 1 tablespoon lemon juice
• 2 teaspoons sugar
• 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 dry mustard
• 1 clove garlic, minced

I have had this salad before and I always like it. What I really loved about this particular one was the easy, home-made salad dressing. I am glad I made a double batch. Thanks for posting it!!
