Surprisingly light but decadent-tasting salad. The balsamic reduction provides enough moisture so that no additional salad dressing is needed. Serves 2 entree-sized salads or 4 small appetizer salads.

I would give this 10 stars if I could. Absolutely delicious and so easy to make. I used mixed greens instead of just spinach; dried figs instead of fresh; and added a clove of garlic to the onions. I would eat this salad every day if I could. So going to make it over and over again! Thank you! Read More
