These were a major hit at a birthday potluck at work. I used freshly squeezed lime juice instead of lemon. Very aesthetically appealing as well as tasty.

These are delicious! Nice tangy creamy avocado flavor plays really well off the tomatos. Another plus is that they look beautiful set out on a plate - so colorful. I didn't change anything - made them just as posted. Only thing I'll probably do different next time is make more!!

Very tasty and unique (I used red lumpfish caviar), although a lot of work. We had an assembly line of three so it wasn't so bad. Thank you.
