Spring Greens Dinner Salad

This was a quick dinner salad I threw together one night when we needed an accompaniment to our main dish. This wasn't anything elaborate, just a few of our favorite ingredients tossed together which made for a pleasing dish. The vinaigrette was particularly tart, so I recommend starting with 1 tbsp of the raspberry wine vinegar and adding a bit more to taste.
