Strawberry Avocado Salad with Tangy Honey Dressing

adapted from Allrecipes

I made this springy salad because it is still cold out and I want it to get warmer. The dressing was excellent, and it was very light and refreshing. Great with a side of grapefruit. I will definitely be making this again when the local strawberries are in season.

torn salad greens
1 avocado, cut into pieces
10 sliced strawberries
1 kiwi, cut into chunks
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted

Tangy Honey Dressing:
1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp white sugar
4 tsp honey
1 Tbsp cider vinegar
1 tsp lemon juice
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 tsp salt

Tear up salad, chop up fruit and assemble salad. In a small saucepan, toast the pecans with 1/2 Tbsp butter (or olive oil) and add salt, once turning brown put on a plate and set aside. Assemble dressing, mix well and sprinkle on salad.
