Sunflower Seed and Everything Else Salad

I made this salad up with a certain craving in mind...something tart, sweet and nutty, and very hearty! I kept the dressing very simple, and it helped pronounce the flavor of the ingredients.

This will feed 4 adults for lunch, or provide 6 generous portions to accompany a main meal.

-3 cups (or 6 ounce bag) of 7 lettuce blend (or European style blend...any of the fancy stuff is fine...probably even romaine)
-1 pear, cut into small cubes
-2 Persian cucumbers, finely diced
-1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
-1 avocado, cubed
-1/4 red onion, minced
-1/2 cup carrots, finely chopped
-1/2 cup orange cranberries (if you don't have orange flavored, normal cranberries will do)
-1/2 cup sunflower seeds
-1/2 cup Mediterranean seasoned feta cheese (or plain feta) time I'm trying this with goat cheese

-juice of 1 lemon
-zest from 1/2 a lemon
-3 tablespoons olive oil
-salt to taste
-fresh cracked black pepper

To make
-toss all the ingredients together
-mix in dressing right before serving
