Enjoyed this salad and have made several times, but we have enjoyed other dressings more than this one - Ranch and Blue Cheese are my family's favorites - everything else we keep the same. Easy to prep ahead and just throw together just before serving.

I would give this 10 stars, it is so delicious!!!! The only thing I changed was using grape tomatoes or similar small tomatoes.

This salad is delicious and easy to prep ahead and combine just before serving. I sometimes leave out the bacon for vegetarian guests.

I loved this salad and will definitely be making again. Next time I will reduce the salt as I thought it was a bit too salty. I only used 1 avocado and thought it was plenty. I also used real bacon bits to save on prep time.

A must try for those (like me) who love avocados

My husband and I started our supper and looked up at each other at the same time ... "This salad is good!" I was worried before I tasted it that it had too many onions, that the dressing smelled too sweet, but all the parts came together to create a delicious whole. I will definitely be making this again!

This has got to be one of my favorite salad recipes. Every time we are having a mexican style dinner, this salad goes perfectly with it. Plus it's so darn yummy!!! My husband and I both just love it!

A great salad, even though I forgot and left the bacon in the microwave! I did add about 2 T. of sugar to the dressing, and I really liked the subtle sweet/sour effect. I made the dressing and added the onion and chopped tomatoes to it and let it marinate in the refrigerator until just before serving, then I added the avocado and lettuce - that helped with last minute preparations.
