Citrus Salad with Baby Greens, Cucumber and Avocado

What I love about eating right is the array of colors and the sheer beauty of many of these dishes … and this one is no exception! I love bringing this salad to parties because it has a lovely presentation. It can be assembled ahead of time and dressed just before serving. Enjoy!!
