Stick to the 1/4 c. of red onion. One of the times I made this, I just wanted to use up the rest of the onion...bad idea. 1/4 c. is the perfect amount. Other than that, I love this recipe. I've used it as a salsa for chips, a condiment on wraps, and eaten it straight as a salad. It's awesome and no-cook. It doesn't get much better than that!

I mixed things up a bit. I used grape tomatoes instead of medium vine ripened tomatoes. I also added in chopped yellow pepper. This was SO good! The dressing was perfect! Thanks!

This was a very nice salad with great flavor. I served it on a bed of lettuce along with lemon pepper grilled chicken and steamed rice. My wife commented on how delicious it was, and she does not particularly care for tomatoes but adores avocados. A touch of cilantro would make a nice addition to the presentation if you were serving it with a Mexican meal. This is a very versatile salad that could be paired with just about any dish.

Wonderful! I made this in the morning before church so it sat through the service (marinating) until our potluck at noon. It looked lovely (the lemon juice, which I actually drizzled on separately, kept it from discoloring) and tasted very flavorful. I used a combination of red onion and green onion, as well as a crushed garlic clove. Needless to say, there were no leftovers.

Very good! I used both red and orange tomatoes. I made the dressing and mixed it with the tomatoes and onion and let it marinade in the refrigerator all day then added the avocado, pepper, and kosher salt right before serving.

This simple little salad is a hit at my house! I love avocados and have been trying to add more of them to our diet. I used a vidalia onion because it is what I had on hand. I added yellow pepper and little hot pepper for fun. Took a whopping five minutes to put together and made a great side for black bean soup. Yum!

Loved it! I may add a little less oil the next time, or maybe i just needed bigger tomatoes, but the taste was great! Thanks for posting!
