In a large bowl, combine the baby spinach and green leaf lettuce and shredded carrots, sliced radishes, and sliced avocado. Add 1/4 cup of the dressing, season with salt and pepper, and toss well.

Divide the salad between four salad plates. Scatter the crumbled feta and pecans, dried cranberries, and croutons evenly over all four salads.
