Glazed Pecan Salad Topping 550

One of my favorite ways to “dress up” a green salad is with toppings and these Glazed Pecans are a delicious addition to just about any green salad especially ones with fruit in them.  I save myself a lot of money by making them and it only takes 3 ingredients and hardly any work.

Just place your pecans in a medium frying pan over medium heat to toast them, once the pecans are toasted and smelling all nutty, add in the butter, melt it and mix together. Add in the brown sugar and stir until the sugar is melted and the pecans are coated.  You will notice that the ingredients start to bubble and you know they are done. Remove them from the heat and let them dry/cool on wax paper. When cool, break apart if stuck together. Store in fridge…if they last that long!

Super easy, right?

When they cool you can add them to your salad or they are delicious alone as a snack too!  One of my other favorite ways to use them is  sprinkled on some creamy ice cream,  along with some caramel sauce.  This time of year when we are BBQing and have potlucks and picnics planned this recipe is a staple around our house!
