  • 2 cups fresh spinach (torn)
  • 1 cup romaine lettuce (torn)
  • 3 sprigs fresh mint (stem removed)
  • 1/2 cup cubed watermelon
  • 3 to 4 fresh figs (stem removed and cut into quarters)
  • 1 oz Unexpected Cheese*
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  • In a small bowl whisk together the balsamic vinegar, honey, sea salt, and pepper together; set aside.
  • Toss the spinach and lettuce together, spread out on a serving plate.
  • Layer with the cubed watermelon, fresh figs, and mint leaves.
  • Using a peeler, "peel" slices of the Unexpected Cheese on top of the salad.
  • Whisk the dressing together just before serving and drizzle over the salad


*I found my "Unexpected Cheese" at Trader's Joe - it is a white cheddar with hints of Parmesan cheese
