Nectarine and Avocado Salad with Ginger-Lime Dressing

I love salad and fruit in salad and crunch in salad and flavorful dressings on salad. This salad from Oh My Veggies  has all of that! The crunch comes from wheat berries. I actually used spelt berries instead since that's what I found at the store. I bought plain tofu, but then marinated the tofu pieces in the dressing before adding to the salad.  Really, really fresh and good!

Nectarine and Avocado Salad with Ginger-Lime Dressing
1 (5-oz.) pkg. spring mix salad greens
2 nectarines, pitted and sliced
1 medium avocado, pitted, peeled, and sliced
1 cup wheat berries, cooked according to package instructions and cooled
1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 (8-oz.) package marinated tofu, cubed (optional)

Ginger-Lime Dressing:
1/4 c. lime juice
2 T. honey
2 T. tamari
2 T. extra-virgin olive oil
2 T. minced cilantro
2 T. minced fresh mint
2 t. lime zest
2 t. minced ginger
Salt and pepper to taste

Divide the greens into 4 large bowls. Place the nectarines, avocado, wheat berries, sliced onion, and tofu on top of the greens.
 
Whisk together the dressing ingredients and season to taste with salt and pepper. Drizzle the dressing onto the salads and serve.
