Apricot Peach and Mixed Green Salad with Feta Cheese

I have loved the dry apricots since a long time now, and recently, I've started enjoying peaches too. I suffered from a negative notion about peaches for some years, until a friend started getting them for me to share at lunch, and slowly I started liking them. Same is the case for Green Salads. The concept of salads in India is very different from what we see in the US. And believe me, it took me almost 4 years to finally start appreciating the flavors in a bowl of salad. I always knew it was healthy, but never really got to savour it!! But not anymore; I enjoy eating then and here's a recipe that I recently tried. It turned out great- a hand-tossed mixed green salad with apricots, peaches and Ceasar dressing.

1 bag of mixed greens
1 large ripe peach - cut into thin slices
1 fresh apricot or canned slices
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
2 tbsp orange juice
6 tbsp olive oil
2-3 tbsp Ceasar dressing
8-10 garlic-flavored croutons (optional)
3 large tbsp Feta Cheese
salt and pepper - to taste

Wash the peaches and apricots and slice thinly. Toss the fruits with the lemon and orange juice . Now add the olive oil and the dressing. Mix in the greens and add salt and pepper to taste. Finally top it off with Feta cheese and croutons and enjoy as a healthy meal by itself, or as a side order.
