Red, White & Blue Mixed Green Salad

We've all seen those festive red, white and blue desserts for the Independence Holiday... but why should the colors be limited to mainly desserts? I've taken the colors and brought them into a salad I prepared for dinner. This salad takes sweet strawberries, plump blueberries and mixed greens, all dressed with a cherry & orange champagne vinaigrette.

Red, White & Blue Mixed Green Salad
original Joelen recipe

1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/4 cup fresh blueberries
2-3 cups mixed greens
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup chopped pecans
cherry & orange vinaigrette dressing

Combine all the ingredients in a salad bowl and serve immediately.
