This is the first time I've ever shared this recipe, but it's one that my family and friends request for every outing we have! I like to serve it with crackers or sometimes in pita bread for a filling grab-and-go lunch. —Karlene Johnson, Mooresville, North Carolina

"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!"

"Very refreshing! Served it on a bed of field greens. Liked the crunch of the celery and walnuts with the sweet taste of the grapes. Definitly put in recipe box for one that I will make again. Make sure your avocado is firm to the touch as to not turn into mush when you toss the ingredients."
