'Choose Your Adventure' Summer Salad

I use this salad making way to create and experiment with combinations of these five parts of:
Greens - any type of lettuce or kale, thinly slices with a knife
Herbs - chives, tarragon, oregano finely cut with herb scissors; cilantro and parsley leaves are plucked off
Veggies - various chopped veggies: tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers,
(If it's the day before grocery shopping, I'll use frozen peas or corn that have been if the fridge is looking bare.)
Protein - grilled meat, sliced boiled eggs, feta cheese, cooked quinoa
For added bonus, include chopped artichoke hearts, a spoonful of 3-bean marinate, sliced pickled beets, chopped roasted nuts and seeds

Salad dressing is super easy. Mix together in a bowl in this order:
1 avocado, mashed smooth with a fork
1 part sour cream
1 part natural yogurt
1 part mayonnaise
1 minced clove of garlic
1 teaspoon of grainy mustard
Handful of a snipped finely tarragon, chives, which ever flavour you are craving or is at its most tasty. 
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
Add water to make it a smooth consistency.
