Reviews for Almond-Avocado Tossed Salad
"Made this for my tennis team pot luck luncheon. Served it with a bottled raspberry vinaigrette dressing. It was a hit. Prepared it around 7:00am and kept it on ice in a small cooler while we played. When lunch was served more than five hours later, it was still fresh and simply beautiful. Got many compliments on how it looked and how it tasted."
"It's a salad1"
"Really liked this salad and so impressed with the idea of removing the seeds from the cucumbers - now my husband enjoys cucumbers in salads too!"
"I made this for my Bunco night last Wednesday. It was a HUGE hit! Everyone went back for seconds. I served it with Honey-Poppyseed dressing."
