Recipe instructions Apple Pecans and Goat Cheese Salad

1

If using, prepare the candied pecans in advance (or use purchased).

2

Make the dressing: In a medium bowl, whisk the maple syrup, vinegar, Dijon mustard, salt, and black pepper. Whisk in the olive oil 1 tablespoon at a time until a creamy dressing forms. (If desired, make in advance and refrigerate up to 2 weeks; bring to room temperature prior to serving).

3

Thinly slice the apple.

4

Place the greens on a large platter or individual plates. Top with apple slices, candied pecans, goat cheese or feta crumbles, and pomegranate seeds or dried cranberries. Top with about 6 tablespoons of the dressing (or more as desired) and serve immediately (To make ahead, keep all components separate with fresh ingredients and dressing refrigerated. Toss the apples with lemon juice to prevent browning. Bring dressing to room temperature and add all ingredients together directly before serving).

No breakfast recipe is easier than oatmeal. The smooth, heavenly feeling of flawlessly cooked oats is incomparable. However, you might think oatmeal lacks innovation, but that's not true! Our Overnight Cherry-Almond Oatmeal rises above the traditional recipe by adding dried cherries and almond milk. This recipe uses a slow cooker, and like every other recipe in the book, it's also healthy. Oatmeal has a low glycemic index and is full of carbs that can lower cholesterol and blood pressure, preventing heart disease. Studies prove that eating oatmeal regularly reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. So, there's no excuse not to enjoy this dish frequently!
