Easy Baby Blue Salad

Leave a comment

This is an easier version of baby blue salad. The pecans are delish on their own and would work great on other salads or as a snack. Feel free to use more or less balsamic vinaigrette ~ I happen to think a little goes a long way so I use less. I think I found this recipe in an old issue of Southern Living.
