Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the pecans on a small baking sheet and bake until brown and toasty-smelling, about 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, put the bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat and cook, turning once, until crisp, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Put 1 teaspoon of the bacon drippings in a medium bowl. When the bacon is cool, crumble and set aside.

  • Whisk together the bacon drippings, olive oil, vinegar, maple syrup, mustard and salt and pepper.

  • Toss the greens with the goat cheese, pecans and bacon in a large serving bowl. Drizzle with the dressing, toss to coat, season with more pepper and serve.
