Here is a simple, healthy salad that everyone will love!
Fresh, easy and pretty enough for company, this Balsamic Fig Salad can be tossed together in no time. I like to assemble the greens on individual glass plates and cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving time. This pretty salad takes advantage of fresh strawberries and can be easily varied to include other fresh fruits such as diced apples or fresh blueberries for a color explosion on your plate.
I topped the greens and strawberries with the Chocolate Fig Balsamic Vinaigrette from Dove Chocolate Discoveries. This dressing can be ordered online and shipped right to your door. I think the chocolate and fig combination is a delightful flavor combination. You could also top it with bottled Poppy Seed Dressing or another bottled balsamic dressing. If you want to expand the recipe, add a cheese such as crumbled feta, Gorgonzola, Blue Cheese or crumbled goat cheese.
- 1 bag spring mix salad greens
- fresh strawberries, sliced (or blueberries or diced apples)
- Chocolate Fig Balsamic Vinaigrette from Dove Chocolate Discoveries OR other bottled Balsamic Dressing OR bottled Poppy Seed Dressing
- Arrange the salad greens on a salad plate. Top with sliced fresh strawberries. Drizzle with salad dressing.
Rinse the the lettuce greens in a colander and dry on paper towels before assembling. You can get creative and vary the fruit, add crumbled cheese or even add toasted nuts to the mix. Just remember that you can assemble this recipe ahead of time and avoid any last minute rush at mealtime.
Sometimes the simple things are the best….and this is a super simple recipe that will round out any meal.
