Recipe for my favourite salad dressing

This has to be the best salad dressing of all time. (In my books it is) I found this recipe about 2 years and I still make all the time. I buy the pre-washed salad mix most of the time now (the type that comes in a large plastic boxy container) that way if I'm in a hurry I don't have to wash/spin and tear my own. Once you open the container the mixed greens expand and you'll wonder how it all fit in there. Note to polymer clay addicts: the empty containers are great for storing supplies in. They stack nicely and you can see what you have stored inside.
I originally got this recipe from Simply Recipies but I have altered it.

Honey Mustard Vinaigrette Mix all ingredients together in a glass jar, shake well
3/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp honey mustard
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste

Feta cheese
toasted walnut or pecan pieces
dried cranberries
raw sunflowers seeds are a nice addition too
The toasted nuts and dried cranberries are a must! It's these and the dressing that really make this salad sing!!!

Mixed greens
red bell pepper
thinly sliced mushrooms
use any or all of the above or add your favourite veggies
Enjoy!! This salad goes well with anything or alone. Chicken is a nice addition too.
