Arrange Baby Spinach on a chilled plate, top with Mandarin Orange segments, cheese and sliced onion.  Simply drizzle with Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar!

For those who want a touch of Olive Oil…The Olive Tap’s selections would be Sorrento Orange Agrumato Olive Oil or one of our milder EVOOs such as Arbequina or Taggiasca.  Simply pour 3 T. of Olive Oil in a small bowl; while whisking, slowly pour 1-2 T. of Dark Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar.  Drizzle over salad and enjoy!
