This is a nice combination of flavors for a salad. I actually used only spinach leaves for this, with no other greens. The combination of cranberry, citrus, feta, and balsamic really brought them to life. Would go good with any salad greens, but really popped with the spinach alone!

This is delicious!!!!! It has a nice tart/sweet combination with the oranges and cranberries. The feta cheese gives it a bit of saltiness. The second time I made it I used more spinach and less mixed greens because that's what I had on hand. It was just as good as the first time. My husband and I loved it.
