Oh yum! This is terrific, I love this for everything listed. The dressing is enough to send you into a salsa-salad coma, and I used the FULL amount of hot sauce. (I love hot, hot, hot!) Yum, I didn't change one thing about this, it is perfect the way it is. ZWT 7

I used considerably less hot pepper sauce in the dressing for this salad than called for and it still had enough heat for us. Liked the blend of all the ingredients and the heat of the serrano worked really well with the bland, butteriness of the avocado and tart tomato. Enjoyed with Recipe #456709 and Recipe #307686. Thanks.
