To Assemble:

  1. Toss the spring mix with enough vinaigrette to thinly coat the leaves.
  2. Place about 1 ½ ounces of greens on each chilled plate. Top greens with equal amounts of crumbled goat cheese, peach slices, avocado slices and toasted almonds. Serve.

*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.
