Lovers’ Salad With Chocolate Vinaigrette
4 ounces semisweet chocolate chips, melted
1⁄2 cup balsamic vinaigrette, Newman’s Own®
8 cups prewashed baby arugula
1⁄3 cup dried cranberries, Sun-Maid®
1⁄4 cup halved pecans, Diamond®
1⁄4 cup goat cheese, crumbled
1⁄4 cup Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
2 pears sliced (or 1 can [15.25-ounce] light pear halves, drained and sliced)
For the vinaigrette, place chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high about 45 seconds or until melted, stirring every 15 seconds. Slowly whisk vinaigrette into melted chocolate; set aside.
For salad, divide arugula among 4 chilled salad plates. Arrange remaining salad ingredients over arugula. Serve salads drizzled with vinaigrette.
