Boston Lettuce with Goat Cheese, Cranberries and Pecans

This is a great Weight Watcher’s salad with only a points value of 2.  Lots of flavor with the cheese, cranberries and pecans.  I especially enjoy the soft, buttery textured leaves of Boston or Bibb lettuce.

Boston Lettuce with Goat Cheese, Cranberries and Pecans

  • 2 tbsp. raspberry vinegar
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp. red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 head Boston or Bibb lettuce
  • 2 tbsp. dried cranberries
  • 2 tbsp. goat cheese, crumbled (a blue cheese is good too)
  • 2 tbsp. pecans, toasted and chopped

Combine the first 5 ingredients in a small bowl; stir in the onion.  Evenly divide all of the lettuce leaves, torn into bite-size pieces, on each of 4 plates.  Drizzle with the dressing and sprinkle with the cranberries, cheese and pecans.
