Spring Salad with Rosemary Vinaigrette – Diabetes Daily

Ironically, this delicate salad was inspired by the barren, arid Colorado Plateau. It was spring and lunch at the Amangiri was shadowed only by the expansive view.  On my plate, crisp, buttery greens mixed with thyme-infused beans, savory mushrooms, and tangy cheddar. Finished with a rosemary balsamic vinaigrette, it was a cherished moment. One I revisit every spring at my own dinner table, when the market is bursting with tender lettuce.
