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!!

Mixed Green Salad with Chocolate-Balsamic Vinaigrette
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 walnuts, toasted,
¼ cup feta cheese, crumbles,
¼ cup chocolate balsamic vinaigrette, recipe follows,
Shredded chocolate to garnish, optional

Chocolate-Balsamic Vinaigrette
1 cup of your favorite store-bought balsamic vinaigrette,
¾ cup Dove Chocolate Martini Mix

In a large bowl, combine the sprint mix/mesclun greens with the mixed vegetables/herbs, walnuts, and feta cheese. Slowly pour in the chocolate balsamic vinaigrette, and toss lightly. Serve with a garnish of crumbled feta cheese and shredded chocolate, if desired.

Chocolate-Balsamic Vinaigrette
In medium bowl, whisk together balsamic vinaigrette and Dove Chocolate Martini Mix. Pour into a sealable container and store in the refrigerator.
