Romaine and Grape Salad with Passionfruit Almond Vinaigrette

I have a new balsamic vinegar I've been wanting to experiment with:  Passionfruit White Balsamic. What better olive oil to pair with passionfruit than almond? Once again, simple and pure ingredients can give you such flavor in a healthy salad dressing!

Don't neglect to add the sunflower seeds. Not only are they delicious, but they contain Vitamin E, magnesium, and selenium.

For the Vinaigrette, whisk the following together in a small mixing bowl:

3 T. Passionfruit White Balsamic Vinegar
2 T. honey
1 T. Dijon mustard
2 t. minced shallots
salt and black pepper to taste

For the Salad, toss:

1 head Romaine lettuce, chopped, 8 - 10 cups
1 cup halved seedless red grapes
1/4 cup roasted and salted sunflower seeds

Drizzle the salad greens with the dressing and serve immediately.
