One of my favorite foods is a nice salad. I loved adding nuts – preferably caramelized in sugar, fruits of the season, and cheese. Oh my goodness. Yumm-o!! I recently tried to caramelize pecans using Swerve Sweetener! I got the idea from Swerve’s website and thought it would an awesome way to lighten the number of calories in my favorite winter salad.

pecans caramelized with Swerve

I honestly wasn’t sure how the pecans caramelized with Swerve were going to turn out, but I was really very pleasantly impressed. They had just the right amount of sweetness – there was no funky aftertaste, and everyone loved them.


I served this salad at my Grandpa’s 90th birthday party last weekend and everyone raved about. If you haven’t heard of Swerve Sweetener before, it’s a zero-calorie, all natural, non-glycemic, non-GMO sweetener. I’ve been using it for the past month and am happy with how everything I’ve used it in has turned out. It measures cup for cup like sugar and has been easy to work with and results in a delicious end product.
