This recipe is for a great salad my friend Katie makes. When I tasted it I just had to have the recipe. I made it for guests and it is just delicious. It is especially refreshing as an accompaniment to steak and chicken. Don't stress as it seems complicated but it is easy really. Just a caution to chefs don't put the avocado and dressing on till right before tossing and serving as the salad will wilt if left too long and avocado will discolor. All the dressing does not all have to go on at once. Toss it with half and taste and then add more to taste. Thanks Katie for sharing.Enjoy! Chef DLH
