1/4  cup  orange juice
Tbsp.  lime juice
Tbsp.  orange zest
tsp.  lime zest
1/2  cup  vegetable oil
cups  mixed lettuces and greens

Instructions

  1. Grill fresh pineapple slices until lightly caramelized and showing grill marks on both sides. Remove from grill and dice. Measure and reserve any extra for another use.
  2. Combine juices and zest in a bowl. Whisk vigorously while slowly drizzling in the oil until completely combined.
  3. Reserve a small amount of dressing. In a large bowl, toss the mixed lettuces and greens with the remaining dressing. Divide greens evenly onto serving plates.
  4. Using the same bowl, combine the diced grilled pineapple, avocado, blueberries, red onions and reserved dressing; toss to coat. Disperse the mixture evenly over the greens and serve immediately.

Serving suggestion:  For an entrée salad top with grilled tuna or other seafood, poultry or veggie patties.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
