Wonderful recipe! I had a beautiful ripe avocado and not much time to spend on a salad. This was perfect. I substituted red onion for the green to add a little color and also tossed in a few dried cranberries and a little feta. Great! Thanks so much.

Of all the recipes I've tried here, this is one of my favorites. I didn't have any green onions, so I minced a shallot and it worked quite well. It's only been two days since I made this salad, but DH has already asked me to make it again this week. Thanks for this fantastic recipe!!
