Another yummy recipe from the folks at Swanson

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion or shallots
  • 1 cup Swanson Chicken Broth (Regular, Natural Goodness™ or Certified Organic)
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon coarse-grain Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 bags (5 to 8 ounces each) mixed salad greens
  • 2 ripe pears or apples, thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 1/2 cup dried cherry or cranberries
  • 1/4 cup pecans, toasted
  • Crumbled blue cheese (optional)

Directions

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook for 3 minutes or until they're tender.
  2. Stir the broth, vinegar, brown sugar and mustard in the saucepan and heat to a boil. Cook for 5 minutes or until the mixture is slightly reduced. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Beat the remaining oil into the broth mixture with a fork or whisk. Remove the saucepan from the heat and cool slightly.
  3. Toss the salad greens with 1/2 cup dressing in a large bowl. Arrange the greens on a serving platter. Top with the pears, cherries, pecans and cheese, if desired. Serve with the remaining dressing.
