    Slatts's Note:

    From the California Avocado Commision this is a great flavor combination. The original recipe calls for cooked sliced chicken breasts but I leave it out and serve this as a side dish. This salad is easy to throw together. Enjoy!

      A very pretty, easy to make salad with a great balance of flavors and textures--DH and I really loved this!! I made the recipe with no changes, and particularly enjoyed putting together the dressing (it's easy, clever, and perfect for this salad!). This recipe is ideal for the warm summer months ahead! Thanks so much for sharing it, Slatts!!
