Feeling fancy? We’ve got the salad for you. Watercress, fig, candied walnuts, gorgonzola salad with honey. Bon apetite! Here’s what you’ll need:
1 head red leaf or Romaine lettuce
1 cup torn fresh spinach
1 cup watercress
1 cup figs (dried are fine)
1/4 cup candied walnuts
1/3 cup grumbled gorgonzola
1/4 cup fresh bacon bits (not from a can) *optional
For the Champagne Vinaigrette
1/4 cup Champagne vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons white wine (I used Pinot Grigio)
Zest from 1 Meyer lemon
Juice from 2 Meyer lemons
1 tablespoon orange juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallot
1/4 teaspoon garlic paste
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Place all ingredients except oil into a blender and mix for about 30 seconds.
While the blender is still running, slowly add the oil in a
steady stream to emulsify.
Put dressing in sealable jar or bottle in the
refrigerator until ready to use.
Prepare salad, shake dressing well, pour, and lightly toss. Serve immediately.

Time to start tracking again....not because of the good stuff I'm eating ( like this) but the indulgent stuff, like icecreams, popcorn, pizza....did i mention icecreams? 🙊🙊 holy moly ive been addicted 🤗 while i still get quite a few good meals in like this #quinoa#haloumi#tuna#salad with #snowpeas#carrot#capsicum#tomato#redonion#applecidervinegar#dijonmustard i tend to over indulge at night 🐷🐷🐷 oops! Going to eat better and not too restrictive ( but certainly no nightly icecream indulgences 😂 ) over the next 5 days, track it and see where I'm at after 5 days and my coach will adjust my cals according to that. I want to eat well enough to perform well at #training but also maybe have a little less fluff than i currently do lol. Who'd of thought icecreams would make ya chunky 😉😂😂
