Great Salald. . . just wish I'd had some rasins . . . took SusieQuisie's lead and used tomatoes. Love the dressing!

Made for my avocado-loving friend, Twissis ;-) Nice combo of flavors even though I omitted the raisins & almonds by request. I'm not sure I did the dressing correctly - the chili sauce I used had a BIG bite to it but I loved it! Will try again with the sweeter chili sauce, raisins & almonds but I don't know how it could possibly improve the flavor! ;-) Thanks!

DH & I are in Dallas visiting SusieQusie & this salad was part of our "Welcome to Dallas" dinner tonite. We chg'd the salad by leaving out the raisins & almonds & adding tomato. The dressing is the star of this recipe IMHO & it is a real winner! When home again, I'll be making this for us w/the raisins + tomato next time. We loved it! Thx for sharing w/us.

This was an excellent, although I will admit that I didn't measure out anything. I just made two individual salads for DH and me. The dressing was made as written and was excellent. Great combination in this salad. Thanks

Thank you so much for sharing PotPie. This salad was amazing, great tasting and so pretty to look at. A wonderful salad to share with friends or to treat yourself too. I loved all the different textures in the salad. The dressing was devine, so simple yet so delicious. I used the chili sauce and golden raisins. I will be making this again often, into my keeper box it goes...Kudos Kato

Most of my family lives in Hood River (a small town nestled between the Columbia River and Mt. Hood in northern Oregon). Hood River is famous for its orchards of fresh fruit and many culinary delights. I'll be sure to pass this recipe along to them.

This is an outstanding salad! I don't know what or where Hood River is.... but if this is their salad I can only imagine what the rest of their food tastes like! The dressing is so simple and the chili sauce really takes it to another level. The dressing is wonderful with the avacado and I would make it again just to dress them! I reduced the salad to two servings and it worked perfectly. I cannot wait until we have guests... this will be the salad - for sure! Thanks Laurel!

This salad is fabulous! It's pretty to look at and tastes great. I made it as directed, using the chili sauce in the dressing. You've got to try this salad. I know I'll be making it often.
