Salad with Manchego Cheese & Candied Pecans

I tried to recreate this salad that I ate at lgo.

1/2 c. dried cranberries
1/2 c. manchego cheese (i used a veggie peeler for thin slices)
1/2 c. candied pecans (melt sugar on stove, add pecans. i also added maple syrup) toss and allow to dry
1 bag baby lettuce w/radicchio
1 sliced apple sprinkled generously with cinnamon (use lemon juice if you're not going to eat right away)

vinaigrette dressing:
1 tbs balsamic vinegar
3 tbs olive oil
3 dashes sugar
dash salt

i have yet to puree pecans and add to the dressing. i have to dig out my little food processor for that, but the original has pecans ground up in it. Yum!

this sounds yummy, especially if they have it at La Grande! and I can't wait to try out the chili recipe... it's healthy and sounds like it's full of flavor!
