This nutty and unique salad, infused with Insect Protein, is both bright and rich at the same time. It is a love-it or leave-it dish for some, but those who love it crave it AND eat the leftovers of those who don’t! A wicked starter salad for the food adventurer!

Servings: 6

Walnut-Balsamic Insect Protein-Vinaigrette:

4 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

3 tablespoons walnut oil

2 tablespoons (14g) Protein2050 Cricket Powder

3 teaspoons honey

Salt and fresh ground pepper

*This dressing is always made best a little ahead of time so it can do it’s ‘thing’


3 cups baby spinach, freshly washed

3 cups radicchio, chopped

2 celery stalks, sliced thin on an angle

1/4 cup walnut pieces

1 cup organic grapes, sliced in half

1/3 cup crumbled chevre or goat’s cheese


In a small bowl whisk together the walnut oil, balsamic and honey.  When blended, whisk in Protein2050 Cricket Powder.  Season with salt and pepper and then set aside.

In a larger bowl combine the spinach, radicchio, celery, walnuts, and grapes and give them all a toss.

At this point, I like to plate this salad and top with the goat’s cheese.  Finish off with a drizzle of this fragrant nutty Insect Protein-Vinaigrette and Voila!  Ready to ‘wow’!
