"Everyday Cooking"- Field Green Salad with Nectarines,Gloden Raisins,Nuts and Feta cheese

I was a pretty 'healthy' eater until I was pregnant with 'A'. I had severe aversion towards some foods in pregnancy and ate only what 'comforted' my stomach.Now you know what comforts a stomach don't you?????.....Calorie rich... Carbohydrate rich foods!! I ate cold sweet cereals and milk 3 times a day, I ate warm cheesy pastas, steaming hot rice with ghee ...
Now, I am trying to get back on track. I highlighted trying....because IT IS DIFFICULT to give up all that good food!!!! But with inspiration from my new friends 'G' and 'S'...the path to 'healthy eating ' seems 'walkable'!

Any field greens of your choice like -Romaine lettuce, Arugula with Radicchio etc
2 unripe Nectarines (The juices will run out if they are too ripe)
Handful of toasted Almonds and Walnuts
1 tbsp golden raisins
1tbsp Feta cheese
1 tbsp Low fat 'Thousand Island dressing'- only a slight drizzle (I like its creaminess with fruits and nuts...but you can use 'Vinegrette' style dressings too)
Black pepper

1) Wash all the greens and chop.Drain well
2) Slice the nectarines.
3) Put everything together and add salt and pepper and Dig in!
