    Skypoodle's Note:

    I found this recipe on the California Avocado Commission's website. It is a spicy, refreshing salad that can serve 3 as an entree. It can serve 6 as a compliment to any mexican meal. Preparation time does not include the chill time for the salsa. This salsa is a real keeper! Use it for chips, eggs, tacos, steaks, burgers... It is worth saving this recipe for the salsa alone!

      I made this recipe for the office so since I was transporting, I served the salsa, salad, and scoop chips separately-and all was devoured in minutes!!! Thank you for a great recipe, Skypoodle! Made for the Think Pink Tag Game In Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, October 2008.
