Strawberry and Avocado salad with herb citrus dressing! It tastes just as good as it sounds. I made this salad by accident as I was planning on making avocado and tomato salad. I used strawberries instead of tomatoes since I ran out, in the end I was glad I did. The strawberries were perfect with the avocado. The sweet and tanginess of the strawberries complemented the rich avocado while the herb citrus dressing elevated the flavor profile.
