I really loved the addition of avacado in this salad. I did find that the veggies were drowning a bit in the lemon juice. Next time I will only use a couple squeezes, and definitely try lime juice! Thanks for posting:)

Pretty simple but good and tasty with the lovely texture of the avocado. For this to be raw the olive oil must be unrefined which I used in extra virgin olive oil version. I used freshly squeezed lime and it was very good.Followed the rest but next time I'd like to try without the oil since the avocados already have their own good fats. I would make this again.

UHHM YUMMY!! This was so good JB!! I used all local garden fresh ingredients and this was spectacular!! I absolutely love the interaction of the avocado and lime juice together when stirred up a bit. I skipped the olive oil and skimpped on the salt a tad due to personal preference. Can't wait to have this again!! Thanks!! Made for Veg*n Swap 26!!
