8 Mixed Citrus Green Salad with Orange Poppy Seed Dressing

It is cold, rainy and the perfect day for cozy cups of coffee and snuggling on the couch! 
Do you have a packed Saturday or a relaxing one after all of the holiday traveling? 

This Mixed Citrus Green Salad is one of those salads that you can just do a quick chop and then throw everything on a plate! 
I love effortless prep-work! 
I added chicken for protein and adored all of the different flavor combinations from the fruit! 
(I did not make the dressing but it sounds amazing!
Mixed Citrus Green Salad with Orange Poppy Seed
Mixed salad greens
Red seedless grapes, halved
Mandarin oranges
Pineapple chunks
Red grapefruit pieces
Walnuts, toasted
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup canola oil
2 Tbsp champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp poppy seeds
Combine dressing ingredients (all except poppy seeds) in a blender and process until blended. Add poppy seeds and pulse once. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Place salad greens on individual plates. Slice avocado and toss in lemon juice (or reserved citrus juices from any can of fruit, such as mandarin oranges). Top salad with fruit (as much as you like of each) and avocado slices. Add toasted walnuts. Drizzle with dressing and serve.
