A twist on traditional guacamole salads. The capers and dijon lend an interesting flavor with the avocado. The raw onion and garlic were a bit too strong for the other ingredients - I would try a little less onion, and let them soak in the citrus for a while before combining the salad. I used chopped full-size tomatoes, and omitted the cilantro.

This is WONDERFUL! I will be making this regularly this summer and only hope my cherry tomato plants can keep up with how often I will want to make this. LOL I reduced the amounts to make a small bowl for lunch today. My avocado was at its perfect state of ripeness & some melded with the dressing into this delicious creamy coating on the veggies. I added one pkt of splenda to cut the tang from the amount of lemon/lime. This is definitely a KEEPER!

My husband had fourths. That's when you know you're eating a good salad. I was out of red onion and didn't know it and substituted 2 shallots. I think I would use shallots exclusively as I was thinking as I took bite after bite that red onion would be overpowering. My fresh jalapeno wasn't salvageable and I added a good squirt of green Tabasco sauce to the salad dressing as a replacement. Reviewed for ZWT 2009. Thank you, Rita!

This is a beautiful and refreshing summer salad. Loved the combination of avocado and capers and the jalapeno gave it a nice kicked up taste. I will make this again! Thanks for Sharing a wonderful and easy summer salad. (Made for Bevy Tag 5/08)

Used regular tomatoes (seeded) and a splash of hot sauce instead of minced jalapenos, but otherwise followed the recipe - which is fabulous!! The gloriously tart dressing complements the avocados and tomatoes so well. As a side salad this is just perfect! I'd love to eat this as a lunch salad too as I love the combination of the ingredients, and for that, I'd tone down the tartness of the dressing a bit. Thank you Rita!
