Baby spinach leaves, grilled chicken, kiwi, blueberries and peaches (you can use strawberries but our berries looked bad). The white is feta cheese (you can use goat also) and the center is candied pecans.
The dressing: 1/3 cup canola, 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar, 3 Tbs. strawberry jam, 1 Tbs. poppyseeds and 1/8 tsp salt.
For the candied pecans: place a handful of pecans in a small pan, add 1/4 of sugar and a tad bit of water.
Turn the heat on medium high and keep on moving the pecans around. They will begin to carmelize. Keep moving, the sugar and liquid will evaporize. Watch real close as it's easy to burn them. When carmelized, empty pan onto a piece of waxpaper. Cool pecans. When cool, break apart.
