1 teaspoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
Blend the above ingredients in blender or processor until completely smooth. (Can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
7 cups mixed greens
1 (9 ounce) package frozen artichoke bottoms, thawed, patted dry, cut into eights
1 large red bell pepper, cut into strips
2 cups mushrooms, sliced
2 cups leftover cooked lamb meat, trimmed, cut into 1 1/4-inch strips

How Honey Is Created
Honey is created when bees mix plant nectar, a sweet substance secreted by flowers, with their own bee enzymes.
Heat 1/4 cup of dressing in a skillet. Add sliced lamb and cook until just heated through. Season with salt and pepper.
Place salad on plates and top with warm lamb.
