National Pick Strawberries Day is May 20th! Paint your plate with this colorful salad, which is fresh, light and filled with fruits and vegetables. It is even tasty without dressing!

2 bags of pre-washed mixed salad greens (about 14 cups)
1/2 cup strawberries, sliced
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup unsweetened mandarin oranges, drained (or fresh orange pieces)
1/2 cup whole walnuts or walnut pieces
1/2 cup gorgonzola cheese (for a milder cheese choice, try Chevre)

Honey Balsamic Dressing:
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon honey
3 tablespoons low-fat Greek yogurt
½ tablespoon olive oil

Preheat the oven to 350°F.
1. Start by toasting walnuts. Spread the walnuts onto baking pan and bake for 12-14 minutes. Stir halfway through. Cool to make the walnuts crunchy.
2. In a small bowl, make the dressing. Mix all dressing ingredients until blended.
3. In a large bowl, mix all ingredients. Start with the greens and mix in about 1-2 tablespoons of dressing. Then add fruit, cheese and toasted walnuts.
