Butter Lettuce Salad with Yogurt Dressing. An infusion of spring and fall flavors.

A couple weeks ago, I made some Candied Orange Pecans. I had just a few of them left, and decided I wanted to use them on a salad. The pecans have a very fall/winter flavor to them. I felt that a salad of butter lettuce and fall flavors would be perfect for them. I really wasn’t craving a salad with pears though, as the original recipe uses them. Since this is spring and warm weather fruits are those that are in season, I mixed things up a bit. I used strawberries and apples and made this a fall/spring infusion salad. The flavors turned out to complement each other beautifully. This salad was delicious and comforting.
