Pear and Arugula Salad with Easy Glazed Pecans

Ingredients

Glazed Pecans
2.5 oz. pecan halves
1 TBSP butter
1 TBSP maple syrup
¼ tsp. cinnamon
Pinch of kosher salt (optional)


Salad
2 cups arugula
2 cups baby spinach
¼ cup  blue cheese, or Feta cheese crumbles
1 large, ripe pear, sliced into bite sized pieces
2-4 TBSP prepared poppy seed dressing (adjust amount to taste)

Instructions
1. Preheat oven (or toaster oven) to 350. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
2. In a microwave-safe bowl or measuring cup, add butter, cinnamon, and maple syrup. Microwave on high heat for 1-2 minutes, until butter is melted and mixture is bubbly.
3. Add the pecans to the butter and syrup mixture, and stir to coat well. Spread pecans in a single layer on the baking sheet, and sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt, if desired. Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes. (These nuts can burn very quickly, so do not over bake! As soon as they start looking darker brown, take them out.)
4. While nuts are cooling (5-10 minutes), gently toss the arugula, spinach, pear, cheese and salad dressing together. Sprinkle glazed nuts over salad and serve.
