Unconventional to be sure. Absolutely not the same old lettuce & tomato deal. I had no idea what the reaction to this mixture would be and wondered if I should really serve it as I mixed it, but what a WONDERFUL side dish and my family told me to make it again sometime! I made the recipe exactly as written but I seemed to have almost a quarter cup of dressing that pooled at the bottom of the bowl before serving. I might possibly cut back on the amount of dressing next time or just drain off the excess. Also was well-received at a Cinco de Mayo party last week!

With so few ingredients, I don't know what I could have done wrong, but this didn't work for us at all.

This is the most awesome salad ever! I made this for our Memorial Day BBQ and I got complaints.......that there wasn't enough! I could have easily doubled this and still not have had any leftovers. Just as several other reviewers stated, I too was hesitant after tasting the dressing on it's own as it is very tart and mustardy. I was concerned about ruining perfectly good avocados and Maui onions. Don't give that a thought! I have no idea how the veggies temper the dressing but together they are magical. This is a summertime keeper!

Tangy & sweet & oh, so GOOD! A few dashes of garlic powder finish it off perfectly. We eat this with everything all summer long! -Lesleigh Baden

This was an awesome side dish and super simple to put together. I was a bit hestitant after tasting the dressing. It was a quite tart alone but quite an enhancement to the avocado and onion.

Just had this salad for supper. Awesome!! We didn't have stone-ground mustard so we used spicy brown and it was superb. It was a HUGE hit with everyone!
