Avocado Mandarin Tossed Salad

Rated as 4.45 out of 5 Stars

"Crunchy toasted pecans and slices of creamy avocado add to the variety of textures and tastes in this interesting mixture. The salad is a lovely complement to my pork roast but is also delicious with many other meals. -Pat Stevens, Granbury, Texas"
