      This was really easy to put together. The color was amazing, such a pretty green from the avocado and watercress. The only change was I used toasted pinenuts. I thought it would be very flavorful because of the great ingredients but it was a little bland. A whole tsp of salt helped. Maybe zesting a lemon would kick it up a bit. I'll make this again, with slight adjustments, because it's an interesting recipe. Thanks LittleWing.
