With salad season in full swing, it's inevitable that you soon will be sick of your go-to mix of greens. Doesn't matter if you favor romaine or Boston, herbed mixes or arugula, or even old-school iceberg. In short order, the idea of yet another bowl of greens will simply seem depressing and uninspiring.

So we decided to create a green salad that will keep you coming back for more. And not a single leafy green is harmed in the making of this meal. We combine fresh green beans, asparagus, snow peas and zucchini for a fresh and delicious take on a not-so-basic green salad. For good measure, we also pile on some fresh dill and avocado slices.

And since we already were mixing things up, we created a zippy orange-Dijon vinaigrette to tie everything together.
