Fresh greens with Strawberries, Blueberries and Citris Vinegarette

Wow! I must say I'm impressed. This salad is so good. I wanted to try and duplicate a dressing that my friend gets on her salad at one of the restaurants we go to a lot. I think I did it, maybe even like this better. I also made some of this same sauce (minus the poppy seeds) for marinade and have chicken breasts marinating for me to grill tomorrow. I have assorted greens, fresh strawberries, fresh blueberries (they were on sale and they are so good for you so I am trying to make me like them), fresh avacado and the dressing with a little salt and pepper added. I don't really follow recipes exactly. I just kind of dump stuff in and hope it's right. This salad would be perfect with cold grilled chicken or accompanying either quiche (I don't make that but our restaurant, or with a steak, or simply by itself as a healthy meal. There really are more slices of strawberries, more blueberries and more avacado in the salad. The restaurant serves this salad with just spinach and usually adds pineapple. I think they sunk to the bottom when I was taking the picture.

Ingredients: Fresh assorted greens, juice of one fresh lemon, juice of one fresh naval orange, fresh avacado, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh garlic, poppy seeds, garlic salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. YUM!
