Balsamic Spring Salad

For those of you who love salads, this dish is nothing but healthy and delicious. It’s my go-to salad recipe because of its simplicity. You probably won’t turn back to store-bought dressing ever again! These greens are infused in a balsamic vinaigrette dressing and topped with an avocado. But you really can customize to whatever toppings you wish!
