One Lincoln Recipes – Candied Pecans

If you’ve been to One Lincoln more than once, the odds are good that you’ve enjoyed our Gorgonzola Salad, complete with spinach, romaine, radicchio, dried cranberries, and poppy seed dressing. But the spicy, candied pecans are the key ingredient you’ll need to help round out the flavor by cutting the sweetness. Now you can try our signature salad at home by using our recipe. Turn up the heat or cut it back by adjusting the amount of cayenne pepper. Delicious!
