Baking Pecans:

  2. Either on the parchment paper or in a small bowl, combine pecan pieces and honey and stir until pecans are evenly coated.

  3. Bake for 10 minutes, check them and stir them. If needed, add a few more minutes while keeping an eye on them so they don't burn.

  4. Let cool for 10 minutes and then they are ready to eat!

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste


Bake the Salmon or Chicken:

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the paprika, garlic powder, pepper and salt. This will be the salmon seasoning blend.

  • Drizzle the salmon nuggets with olive oil, add the seasonings and then place them on a lightly greased baking pan or a skillet.

  • Bake the nuggets uncovered for 12-15 minutes or until they flake easily when tested with a fork and then remove them from the oven


Build the Salad:

  • Prepare the dressing by adding all the ingredients to a jar with a twist off lid or even a bowl and just shake or whisk until everything's well-mixed.

  • Combine lettuce, pepper, onion and cucumber in a large bowl and mix well for an even distribution of colors.***

  • Stir in dressing to taste.

  • On a bowl-by-bowl basis, top off the salad with avocado, and then sprinkle on the toppings ie honey glazed pecans, if using dried fruit mix the craisins, dried cherries and dried blueberries.
