Hosting a Progressive Dinner

This October we hosted a Progressive Dinner. Our entree was salad. I haven't participated in a progressive dinner before, and I would totally do it again. It was extremely easy, preparation was quick, clean up was simple and it was fun welcoming people into our home.

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
1 Pear
Mixed baby greens
1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
Berry Balsamic Vinaigrette
1/4 cup roasted, candied pecans

Berry Balsamic Vinaigrette:
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 Tablespoon raspberry preserves
1/2 teaspoon sale
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup EVOO
sugar to taste
Mix together and shake well.

Candied Pecans:
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup white sugar

Heat sugar in skillet over medium heat. After sugar starts to melt add pecans, toss and quickly remove from heat onto parchment paper.

Here are more pictures of our fall progressive dinner decor.
