Spring Greens with Feta and Dates

Spring Greens

Crisp shallots, sweet dates, and salty feta adorn this early spring salad. 


  • 3oz (90gr) fresh spring greens
  • 2oz (60gr) feta cheese
  • 2 shallots, sliced
  • 810 dates, pitted
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • Sherry Vinaigrette:
  • 2 tbs sherry vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 tbs salad olive oil 


  • Sauté shallots in oil over medium-low heat until nicely browned, about 15 minutes. 
  • Make vinaigrette in a large bowl:
  • Put mustard, vinegar in the bowl and whisk.
  • Slowly whisk in oil.
  • Prepare greens, add to vinaigrette, and gently toss.
  • Arrange salad on 2 plates.
  • Top with shallots, dates, and feta.


I had a mix of spinach, rocket, and lamb’s lettuce. Use whatever is available.
You can use your favorite vinegar in place of the sherry vinegar.
