My family loves to have potluck barbecues during the summer. With several backyard gardens in the family, you can be sure one of us will bring a variation of this classic salad. Add a dash of your favorite hot sauce if you like to turn up the heat! —Karen Goodnature, Lompoc, California

"A Very delightful salad! It will definitely be on the menu regularly!"

"I absolutely loves this salad, made a slight variation and used english cukes and actually combined it with a lettuce salad and it was an absolute hit."

"Reminds me of a lovely pico de gallo. Therefore I used a combination of both lemon and lime juice. Awesome, awesome. Very tasty. Only used 1 avacado, a Florida one, as they are so large. Lovely when you first make it and left overnight, it is even more flavorful. You could, if you wish, add some tomato juice and turn it into a soup. This will be one of my 'staples' during the summer."

"Very refreshing for a summer salad. The lemon juice keeps the avocados fresh :)"

"Good made 1/2 with shrimp and 1/2 with scallops, both broiled with some Old Bay sprinkled on top. Used only 1 seeded cuke and 1 big Florida avocado . Substituted a half of a habanero for the jalapeños . Just used a touch, maybe a 1/4 tsp at most, of sea salt. Made early in the day so flavors would meld, but didn't put the avocado in til about 20 minutes before serving. Very good and still delicious the next night too!"
