There's nothing like a good, simple side salad to complement a dinner party or a big family supper. To me, the best salads are a perfect combination of crunchy, salty, sweet, and zesty - and if they can be thrown together in mere minutes, then all the better!
This salad is elegant enough to serve at a dinner party, but easy enough to whip up for a light lunch. The sweet taste from the dried berries goes perfectly with the creamy saltiness of the cheese and the crunch of the pine nuts paired with crisp, fresh greens makes for a wonderful texture. No need for bottled dressing; you are two ingredients and half a minute away from a perfectly zesty drizzle of flavour.
Wash and pat dry baby greens.
Top with pine nuts, dried berries, and cheese.
Whisk together balsamic vinegar and olive oil; drizzle over top the salad.
