Mixed Greens with Rainier Cherries, Nectarine, Feta Cheese and a White Balsamic Vinaigrette

Words cannot describe how much I loved this salad.  The cherries, nectarines, and pomegranate seeds gave it such a lovely sweet flavor while the feta gave it a salty flavor and the white balsamic vinaigrette tied it all together beautifully.  I served this salad with the Shrimp Scampi and we gobbled it right up.  I’ll admit it… I went back for seconds of this salad.  Give this salad a try if you want a nice and light salad that is full of great flavors and textures.
