What a great combination! Used green jalapeno slices from a jar and the avocado could have been a touch riper, but the combo was still amazing. Thank you!

Wonderful, especially on a warm night. Served with recipe #170973 for a terrific dinner. My cilantro in the photo looks strange because it is the only variety of cilantro I can get to grow here in CT. Thanks for posting an EASY and delicious recipe.

Great!!! Very refreshing. I also sprinkled on some pico de gallo seasoning. My DH devoured it!
