Fresh Greens Salad with Nectarines, Blueberries, Feta and Glazed Walnuts

Servings 4 people



  • 5 oz. fresh arugula or spinach pre-washed (about 8 cups, loosely packed)
  • 2 Tbsp Sigona's summertime peach white balsamic
  • 1 Tbsp minced shallot
  • 1 tsp. honey such as Wild Montana Clover Honey from Honey Hole Honey Co., available at Sigona’s
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 Tbsp Sigona’s Fresh Press extra virgin olive oil Mix it up! Try Sigona’s Meyer-Lemon Fusion Olive Oil (see note)
  • 2 locally grown California Clean nectarines or peaches, halved, pitted and sliced into 8 to 12 pieces each
  • About 1/2 to 3/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup crumbled Feta
  • About 1/3 cup Sigona’s glazed walnuts more or less to taste
  • Optional: 1 to 2 green onions sliced on a bias


  • Place the arugula or spinach in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the balsamic, shallot, dijon, honey, salt and pepper. While whisking, drizzle in the olive oil to emulsify the mixture. Drizzle about 3 tablespoons of the vinaigrette over the arugula and toss, toss, toss to coat each leaf. Add more, if necessary, but only a teaspoon at a time, being careful not to overdress.
  • Transfer the dressed greens to a serving bowl and then sprinkle on the remaining ingredients evenly over the greens. Serve with the remaining vinaigrette on the side.
