Oh my! A field of greens topped with avocados, cilantro, craisins, spiced almonds and drizzled with a white balsamic vinaigrette. Kudos to The Café Sucré Farine, Chris Scheuer.

Simply delicious!! The changes I made were, I used pecans instead of almonds and I do not care for cilantro, so subbed in parsley. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag game. :)
