  1. Place all ingredients for salad into large bowl.
  2. For dressing, blend lemon juice, garlic and salt and pepper in a blender until frothy. With blender on, slowly add in olive oil to emulsify.
  3. Pour desired amount of dressing over salad and toss together. Serve immediately!
  4. *If you want to make this in advance, do not add avocados, croutons or dressing until ready to serve!
