Serving this salad in cucumber rings as pictured will give you major presentation points for a special occasion.

How to Make It

Step 1

Place chopped pecans in a single layer in a shallow pan.

Step 2

Bake at 350º for 8 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally. Let cool 30 minutes or until completely cool.

Step 3

Using a Y-shaped vegetable peeler, cut cucumbers lengthwise into very thin strips just until seeds are visible. Discard cucumber core.

Step 4

Shape largest cucumber slices into 4 (2 1/2- to 2 3/4-inch-wide) rings. Wrap evenly with remaining cucumber slices. Stand rings upright on 4 serving plates.

Step 5

Fill each cucumber ring evenly with mixed greens, next 3 ingredients, and toasted pecans. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle each salad with 1 Tbsp. White Wine Vinaigrette, and serve with remaining vinaigrette.

Step 6

Note: Y-shaped vegetable peelers can be found at most kitchen, home goods, and discount stores from $99 to $
