Patriotic Salad with Chocolate Balsamic Dressing

Not just an average salad dear friends!  This one carries such a wonderful combination of flavors.  It has strawberries, blueberries, starfruit, spinach and feta.  To top it off?  Chocolate of course!  BUT, not just chocolate; my other favorite flavor (in the cooking world)… balsamic vinegar.  The vinegar and chocolate work in perfect harmony along with the salad.  Not to mention?  It’s somewhat healthy, and there can be joy in that!

So enjoy this Memorial Day season remembering those who died for us and for those who continue to fight for our freedoms here in the USA!!!

God Bless America!

Ingredients (recipe adapted from The City Sisters):

  • Spinach leaves
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Feta Cheese
  • Star Fruit (aka: Carambola)
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark chocolate (I used 72% dark chocolate)

Directions:

Arrange the salad then drizzle the dressing on top.

Dressing directions:

Over medium (no warmer) heat, dissolve the sugar in the balsamic vinegar.  Once blended, remove from heat and whisk in chocolate.  Do not refrigerate dressing or it will solidify.

Enjoy!
