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.

Hi Pam, what a colorful and appetizing salad! I love your feta addition, in Greece feta is commonly served with watermelon or cantaloupe as a light meal on hot summer days…Have a great week!
Looks really good. Nice pictures you have here. Congratulations.
I love fruit in salads so this id one for me. Yum yum Have a great week Diane
I have everything except the white balsamic vinegar raring to go.
Cherries, nectarines and pomegranate sound good in a salad.. I think that I would have them with chicken.. (can’t do anything, I love chicken :))
What a lovely and fresh summer salad. All the fruit looks really great!
Love that you’ve used balsamic vinegar in this. Balsamic vinegar and feta go together so, so well. Beautiful salad Pam. The cherries have been excellent this year.
Not only does your salad speak of summer…it is beautiful. What a nice photo.
Ranier cherries are my FAVORITE! But they never last long enough around here to do anything with besides eat them plain. Your salad sounds tasty!
Love the flavors in this! And I have some amazing nectarines from Costco so I can definitely make this ASAP!

Another perfect summer salad! I bet it was wonderful with the sweetness of the fruit and the saltiness of the feta!
