Chocoalte Diva Friday

Guess what, our Chocolate Diva is out of town at a fun convention and forgot to get her info to me so I decided to take matters into my own hands!!  I'm sure that shocks you!  Thought this recipe sounded yummy since I'm into salads with the warm weather.  And I have the fixings!!

1 bag spring mix/mesclun greens,
Your favorite mixed vegetables/herbs, (shredded carrots, sliced mushrooms, onions, cherry tomatoes, yellow peppers, basil, dill, etc)

¼ cup chocolate balsamic vinaigrette, recipe follows,
Shredded chocolate to garnish, optional
