Spring Mix with Dried Cranberries and Candied Pecans

Thank God I didn't buy the bagged spinach! "I'll have the spinach salad, with a sprinkling of E coli. 157."

This actually was a bagged spring mix salad, but so far so good on the intestinal health.
When I was at Trader Joe's last week I bought a large bag of pecans. I didn't really know what to put on them to make them candied, so I melted some butter with a little brown sugar, tossed the pecans in that, then put them in the toaster oven for a few minutes. It seemed to work well, except next time I will also add a little honey to the mixture. My little sister who was here for the day also suggested adding a little cinnamon and nutmeg to the mix, which I think is a fabulous idea.
