Excellent salad! Simple to put together and it makes a wonderful presentation in a glass bowl. I used chunked up cucumber instead of avocado since I am the only one who likes avocado. I think it would be awesome with the avocado. I used green leaf lettuce. We used whatever dressings we had in the fridge. This salad would also be great to bring to a potluck ~ it makes a large salad. Thanks for posting a new salad to add to my cookbook!
