Baby Greens with Feta, Pine Nuts, and Dried Cranberries (The Shona Salad)

September 13, 2012

My friend Shona makes this salad, that is, in a word, addictive! I’m not lying when I say that I eat this about 4 days a week for lunch. It’s super quick to make, packed with healthy stuff, and tastes sooooo good! I add diced cooked chicken breast and chopped green onions to mine to make it a meal, but skip that if you want to serve this as a side salad. As usual with my salad recipes, there are no amounts listed under the ingredients. Throw in as much or as little as you like of each ingredient, depending on how much you want to make. To Shona I say THANK YOU! And you will too as soon as you try this salad :)
