2 cups  Shredded Carrot
4 - 6 cups  Baby Spinach

3/8 cup  Balsamic Vinegar
5/8 cup  Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 1/2 tablespoons  Honey
3 1/2 teaspoons  Brown Sugar

Instructions: Wash and prep :
*Part 1: Ice Burg - Purple Cabbage - Carrots - Romane - Baby Spinach (Or you can use pre-mixed salad packs)

*Part 2: Grape Tomatoes - Sliced Strawberries - Sliced Dark Cherries - Sliced Cucumber - Diced Avocado

Either leave salad ingredients separated for salad bar style serving or toss together Part 1 and top served salads with Part 2 to taste

Top with my Simple Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

Combine Balsamic Vinaigrette - Extra Virgin Olive Oil - Honey - Brown Sugar - Salt - Pepper - Garlic Powder to taste

Wisk until well blended and almost creamy. You can adjust any of the ingredients up to taste. Tada! Dressing takes about 10 minutes to make. Chill ingredients and dressing before serving for an even more refreshing salad. The dressing makes enough for 8 standard side salads.
