This unique salad is made in one skillet and served immediately.

Makes 8 servings

    • ½ pound diced Andouille sausage
    • 1 minced shallot
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

    • 4 tablespoons cider vinegar
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 10 ounces of mixed winter greens (baby mustard, beet greens, chard or kale)

Get skillet hot and add diced Andouille. Brown evenly and add minced shallot. Add the brown sugar, mustard, and cider vinegar. Stir until sugar dissolves. Add olive oil and stir again.
