Dice the dates and apricots. Set aside in a bowl with the raisins and walnuts.
To make the vinaigrette: blend together vinegars, shallots, mustard, thyme and honey in a food processor or blender. Once it’s blended, add oil with motor running. Blend until emulisified. Reserve.
To assemble; put the greens in the bowl with the fruit and nuts, dress with vinaigrette and toss to cover. Distribute evenly among plates and top with cheese.
