Spring mix-Berry,Mango n Avocado Salad

I love Spring time,not only for the lovely weather,birds and flowers it brings but also for the abundance of spring vegetables,fruits and salads that are available which taste so fresh and crisp just like the Spring air.I haven't posted a recipe in a while because was busy  mulching and  planting my flower,veggie and herb kitchen garden.Will post the pics as soon  as the veggies start to grow.Have planted Basil,Oregano,Sage ,Thyme,Tarragon,Lavender,Tomatoes,Eggplant,Zucchini,Watermelon,Okra ,Bell Peppers and another long list of flowers some of which have to be planted yet .So please excuse me for not blogging regularly.Here's a delicious Spring salad .Goes well with BBQ chicken or baked fish or even on it's own.I love the combination of early Spring salad mix with delicious strawberries and ripe mango and creamy avocados.
