Vinaigrette
2 Tablespoons Olive oil
2 Tablespoons blood orange olive oil (or more plain olive oil)
2 Tablespoons fig balsamic vinegar (or regular balsamic)

Glaze the pecans by tossing in a saute pan with a tablespoon of sugar, melt over low heat and cook stirring until toasted. Let cool. Meanwhile assemble the other salad ingredients and whisk together the ingredients for the vinaigrette. Taste the vinaigrette and add salt and pepper to taste. Toss salad with vinaigrette and pecans.
