Strawberries, avocados and mandarin oranges come together beautifully with fresh baby greens and a tangy citrus dressing in this lovely salad! Perfect for spring or summer time entertaining. The light and tangy flavors pair perfectly with meat and poultry, especially those that are grilled and barbecued. The dressing is great over spinach salad, as well. Add chopped pecans for a little crunch, if you like. Slightly adapted from a recipe found at Wives with Knives.
