  • 1 bag spring mix salad
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 1 cup pickled sliced beets drained
  • 1/2 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugared pecans
  • 1/2 cup French vinaigrette dressing


  1. Cook the asparagus in an air fryer, or grill it.

  2. If making you're own vinaigrette as I described, mix about 1/2 cup of the Newman's Own balsamic vinaigrette with 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.

  3. Divide the spring mix among four salad plates.

  4. Top each salad evenly with the cooked asparagus, beets, goat cheese and sugared pecans.

  5. Top each salad with a few tablespoons of the vinaigrette dressing. Serve.
