Favorite Fruit Filled Salad

As the weather gets warmer, I start thinking of meals I can fix that don't require me to turn on the oven or the stove.  Salads are an obvious choice but can get a bit boring.  So I did a little experimenting, combining flavors of various salads my friend Laura and cousin Carey fixed and voila!  Our new favorite salad and, by the way, what we're having for dinner

  • Mixed Greens (the darker greens are best, such as spinach, arugula, etc.)
  • Apple cut into large chunks (I prefer Gala apples for this)
  • Sliced Strawberries
  • Dried cranberries
  • Feta Cheese
  • Candied Pecans (Cinnamon Almonds are also great!)
  • Raspberry Vinaigrette ("Fresh & Easy" brand is awesome if you have one of those stores in your area)

Just toss it all together, drizzle with dressing and serve immediately!  YUMMM!
