- 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.
- Combine juices and zest in a bowl. Whisk vigorously while slowly drizzling in the oil until completely combined.
- 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.
- 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.
