For a beautiful salad with an unbeatable combination of flavors, you can't miss with this recipe. We love the mellow avocado together with sweet mandarin oranges and crisp cucumber. The tangy dressing makes this dish special. It's a great summertime salad to serve with grilled meat. -Latressa Allen, Fort Worth, Texas

"Looks like the ingredient list got cut off. Additionally this recipe calls for 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced into rings, and 1 11-ounce can of mandarin oranges, drained.

Hey, TOH, get with the program!"

"The directions and photo indicate this recipe includes onions and oranges; however, they are not mentioned in the list of ingredients. I'm assuming red onions sliced in rings(from the photo) and drained mandarin oranges."
