Mixed Green Cherry Salad with Cherry Balsamic Vinaigrette



2 cups fresh baby spinach

2 cups mixed spring greens

1 cup cherries, pitted and halved

1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

2 radishes, sliced paper thin

1 cup walnuts, toasted

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

2/3 cup olive oil

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper

2 teaspoon Dijon mustard



Chop 1/4 cup of the cherries into fine pieces and place in a jar with the balsamic vinegar. Let soak overnight in the refrigerator. In a large serving bowl combine the spinach, mixed greens, 3/4 cup cherries, blue cheese, radishes and walnuts. Take the vinegar out of the refrigerator. Add the olive oil, black pepper, salt and mustard. Shake the jar until combined. Serve the vinaigrette with the salad. This salad pairs very well with grilled meats.
