This Blueberry Avocado Salad is easy to make and is a great starter or side for any Mediterranean style meal. We love it with chicken and fish dishes. We deem it pretty much essential that you serve it with fresh berries. Your guests will love it.

It also makes for a great and healthy lunch. In fact, you can turn this into a pre or post work-out meal by adding some grilled chicken. The
