1 cup whole raw pecans
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons aged white balsamic vinegar
Sea salt and freshly cracked white pepper, to taste
6 cups loosely packed salad greens
2 cups strawberries, halved

Preheat oven to 300F.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a big bowl, beat together egg whites and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Add raw pecans and stir until the nuts are completely coated. Transfer the pecans onto baking sheet in a single, even layer. Bake for 30 minutes.

In a jar with a tight fitting lid, combine the extra-virgin olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, pinch of brown sugar, sea salt and white pepper to taste. Cover the jar and shake vigorously for 30 seconds to emulsify.

In a bowl, toss the salad greens, strawberries, and candied pecans with vinaigrette.
