Step 1: Begin by thinly slicing all strawberries. In glass or bamboo mixing bowl toss salad blackberries (save a few for garnish), avocado and dressing. For best results toss this mixture well by hand making sure the berries break up into the mixture.

Step 2: Using a 4 inch ring mold with removable top begin with the mold inverted and layer thinly sliced strawberries, then salad mixture about halfway and again a layer of strawberries.

Step 3: Finish by firmly filling in the second half of the mold with salad and compress firmly.

Step 4: Invert mold and gently release salad by pushing top plate through.

Step 5: Garnish with fresh blackberries and a dollop of dressing.
