"Love this salad! I used regular tomatoes when I didn't have cherry on hand and it was still great but the dressing was runny. But its awesome and make sure its cold."

"My DH and I weren't too crazy about this salad - it was okay - but I don't think I will make it again. Would rather make fresh guacomole with the avocado!"
