Spring Fruit & Veggie Salad

Spring SaladSpring is finally here!  Although in LA it had already felt like spring for most of winter , I was so excited for the official start of spring.  I have a couple showers (2 bridal & a baby) to look forward to this spring!  Spring is full of love, life and refreshment.  In celebration of the first day of spring I made a spring salad that was light, refreshing and full of spring fruits and veggies. Cheers to spring!

Spring Salad
Spring Salad (serves 2)
Ingredients:
salad:
1 large chicken breast
Mrs. Dash No Salt Original Blend Seasoning
6 oz of spring greens
1 grapefruit (pink are delicious! but I got a whole bag full of the yellow from my grandpa)
1 large avocado, diced
1/2 mango, diced
1/4 cucumber, thinly sliced
1/4 cup feta/goat cheese
1/4 salted sunflower seeds

dressing:
1 tsbp + 1 tsp grapefruit juice (from grapefruit used in the salad)
1 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 garlic clove minced
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp honey
french salt
freshly ground black pepper

Directions:
Liberally season the chicken with salt, pepper and Mrs. Dash seasoning. Heat a skillet with cooking spray and saute chicken until browned and cooked through. Set aside to cool. Segment the grapefruit by peeling the grapefruit with a paring knife. Over a bowl to catch the juice, slice on the sides of the segment with the paring knife and scoop out. Continue all around the grapefruit. Slice all other fruits, veggies and chicken. Assemble all the salad ingredients together.

Whisk all salad ingredients together and season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the dressing over the salad and toss.
