Dandelion Greens (Or Arugula) and Avocado Salad

“Inspired by Jessica K's wonderful recipe (#136460). IMPORTANT NOTES: While I can buy tender arugula at Trader Joe's, I find that the supermarket dandelion leaves are all pretty tough, even the organic ones. So it would be better to pick some fresh young dandelion leaves from a lawn that is not chemically treated. Regarding amounts of ingredients for this salad: Normally I am pretty flexible when giving amounts for salads, but I will say this: when using bitter greens such as dandelion, or peppery/pungent greens such as arugula, make sure you have enough milder veggies (such as tomato, avocado, cuke, etc.) to counter the sharpness of those greens.”
