This is really nice, a light salad with enough flavor and texture to be satisfying. I did make a few minor adjustments; I used fresh green beans instead of snap peas and added a few extra cups of mixed greens for bulk. This made the dressing to salad ratio perfect for us. The toasted sesame seeds were a nice touch, too, and really set off the avocado nicely. Thanks for posting! Made for Veg*n Swap #13.
