What a wonderful salad to have on a hot steamy night like the one I am having! The creaminess of the avocado dressing is wonderful with the additional tang of the vinegar, and just perfect with the saltiness of the pistachios! I'd definitely add the grape tomatoes.....they are so good with this dressing. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe! Made for Photo Tag.
