Method

Preheat the oven to 325F.

Spoon sugar and cinnamon into a large bowl or plastic bag.

Mix well and set aside.

Place egg white in a separate bowl, whisk until frothy, and add pecans.

Toss to coat completely.

Add pecans to cinnamon-sugar and toss well to coat all pecans.

Spread on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool, breaking them up with a spatula.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a large serving bowl, combine pears, apples, greens, onion, cheese, and cooled pecans.

Drizzle with olive oil mixture and toss to coat.
