Spinach/Romaine Caramelized Pecan & Dried Cranberry Salad

Yes, I know that it is a very long name for a salad, but there was no way to help you all know the yummy stuff that was in it without naming it as such. (Also, a very long sentence to defend the name!)

Anyways, I have recently had similar salads like this at certain resturants and had to compile some recipes so that I could create this myself and here it is! I hope that you will make it yourself! ENJOY!
