Spinach Salad With Fig Dressing - Diabetic Recipes

Diabetics should include as many dark greens in their diet as possible. This salad also incorporates fresh figs which lower blood sugar and an excellent choice for diabetics. This is another recipe I made up for figs which is really a variation of another delicious spinach salad I make that I keep meaning to post.

Ingredients For Spinach Salad With Fig Dressing

1/2 Bag of Organic Pre-cleaned Fresh Spinach
6 Medium Size Organic Fresh Figs
Small Handful of Walnuts
Approximately 2 Tablespoons Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Healthy Splash of Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil
Approximately 1 Heaping Tablespoon Crumbled Organic Blue Cheese
Sea Salt - to taste
Honey - to taste and optional


Put the apple cider vinegar in the bottom of a large salad bowl. Chop half the figs and mash into the apple cider vinegar and stir until it gets mixed good and the figs are "disintegrating." Add in the olive oil and sea salt to taste. Taste and if it isn't sweet enough (figs are pretty sweet though), add a little slight warmed honey. Next add the fresh spinach and toss until the spinach is coated well with the fig dressing and is turns dark green and a little wilted. Next add the blue cheese and toss lightly just until mixed throughout. Dish the salad out (or I eat it right out of the bowl if I'm be myself). Slice the remaining figs into slices and add to the top along with the walnuts. YUMMY!

Additional notes:

Try not to over stir the blue cheese or it will get a little gummy. Also, if you are just starting to reverse your diabetes, you will definitely want to skip the honey. You can always add that back in later after you've reversed your diabetes.
