Spinach & Arugula Salad w/ Fig Balsamic Vinaigrette

Got myself a new toy for Christmas!  Yipee!  And so I played around with it some and here’s a shot of the salad I made from whatever I found in my ref and pantry.  I’m a salad kinda girl so consider this a warning, you’ll see a lot of salad experiments around here.   😉

Spinach & Arugula Salad w/ Fig Vinaigrette

Mixed together spinach, arugula and a nut blend snack I found in Healthy Options called Sahale Snacks.  The variant I chose is called Soccorro Macadamia Nut w/ Hazelnuts, Mango, Papaya and Southwestern Chipotle… yum!

For the Fig Balsamic Vinaigrette:  I mixed together olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a teaspoon of Fig Conserve I got as a gift from Australia (but any preserve of your liking will do, I’m sure).  Then topped it with shaved Parmesan.

Hey, the salad and the pic… turned out well!  Who would have thunk?!   😉
