Ingredients

2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
3 tablespoons sugar
Salt and pepper
1 1/4 cups pecans (4 oz.)
4 fresh peaches, sliced, or 1 1/2 (16 oz.) bags frozen sliced peaches (3 cups)
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
8 cups mixed baby lettuce (7 oz.)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with foil; coat with cooking spray. Whisk vegetable oil, hot sauce, 2 Tbsp. sugar and salt to taste in a bowl; add pecans and toss to coat. Spread on prepared sheet. Bake until sugar bubbles and pecans begin to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature on a rack.

Chop just enough peach slices to make 1/2 cup and puree with vinegar, olive oil, mustard, onion, 1 Tbsp. sugar, and salt and pepper to taste in a blender.

Divide greens among 8 salad plates; top with peaches, dressing and pecans.
