Not the same old lettuce and tomato mixture, that's for sure! Wonderful collection of textures and flavors. You could serve this with any main course. I made it for my family but company would certainly be impressed.

Delicious! I am not normally a huge fan of salads. This is one of my new favorite dishes. I've tried it with walnuts and pecans- both are very tasty.

I served this salad to a friend who had never tasted avacado before. She loved it and (true test of honesty in a compliment) asked for the recipe! Kudos - it's quick & easy, too!!
