Dinner Menu - What do you think?

This is the menu I decided on for dinner on a cold winter evening:

Soup: Butternut Squash+apple+leek

Salad: greens/roman lettuce with broiled red onions and mushrooms, sauteed shrimp and pan toasted corn with a balsamic vinaigrette

Meat: Roast Pork Loin - stuffed with dried figs, almonds, lemon juice, parsley and olives

Side: Mashed Potatoes with butter, sour cream, roasted garlic and a tad of Parmesan.

So here is my question, does it sound like a very fruity and inharmonious meal? Perhaps the salad should be a little less sweet and more tangy? Perhaps more fresh? I can't have any fruits or tomatoes in the salad.

And perhaps the pork loin is a little too loaded with fruit as well? Maybe garlic, rosemary and apricot glaze would be a better choice?

I would really appreciate your comments.
