We did enjoy this salad, but I had to make a few changes with it. First there wasn't any mention of what to do with the honey, so I assumed it went in the dressing. After making the dressing it was much too sweet for us and I didn't think the orange juice would compliment the avocado, so I made my own dressing. I swapped out the orange juice for lemon juice and added 6 more tbsp. olive oil than listed and left out the sugar and honey. I also added some chopped cilantro and threw in some crumbled bacon. I love avocados, and this salad has alot of potential, thanks! Made this for Spring PAC 2008.
