Nine Color Salad - The Perfect Spring Salad

This "Nine Color Salad" is from a place in KC called Spin Pizza.  They specialize in gourmet wood fired pizzas with really high quality, simple ingredients.  This salad is so tasty.  I'm not sure if it is the combination of all of the different greens, or the crunch of the radishes and celery, or how the feta combines with the vinaigrette and coats the leaves of lettuce, but whatever it is - it is great.  And totally cravable.  Yes, a cravable salad.  This is how I recreated it for our friends last weekend:

Nine Color Salad
a cravable salad from Spin Pizza

Boston Bibb Lettuce
Red Onion
Feta Cheese
Roasted Cherry Tomatoes
Dried Italian Herbs
Olive Oil

Red Wine Vinaigrette

1/4 cup of Red Wine Vinegar
1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon of Dried Italian Herbs
1 tablespoon of Sugar
2 teaspoons of Sea Salt
1 teaspoon of Cracked Pepper
1/2 cup of Olive Oil

Roast the cherry tomatoes by drizzling them with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil, then sprinkling with dried Italian herbs.  Roast at 425 for 5-8 minutes.  Let them cool while you prepare, wash and chop the other salad ingredients.  To make dressing, shake together all of the ingredients in a jar or stir them together with a whisk.  Toss all of the ingredients and serve.
