This was refreshing and delicious. Makes for a light lunch. I used pecans instead of walnuts.
Wonderful recipe with all my favorite flavors! Thanks for sharing!
I love this recipe.. It's light and tasty and healthy. I use cranberrs instead of grapes.
Has anyone tried this without the avocado? We are not big fans but the rest of the recipe sounds very good...should I substitute something for the avocado or is it just as good without it?
You can lighten up on the ginger a little, and add glazed pecans instead of walnuts, and trader joe's has orange-cranberry raisins that would be awesome on this. Also a little dijon mustard or a pinch of horseradish could be used. You could sprinkle with finely crushed flavored potato chips of your flavor preference just before serving, too!
