This salad is extremely good. It's amazing how the cilantro flavor does not overpower the salad.

FANTASTIC!! I added some bowtie pasta and black olives per another suggestion and it was a light but satisfingly refreshing meal!! Takes some time to dice eveything but well worth it as it is requested by friends so often. Add and delete as you wish as it really is a forgiving recipe and one that you will be so Glad you made!!

Good combination of flavors but the lemon juice alone was too dry. I added about 2 tablespoons of really good evoo and it was more moist and tasted better. Read More

Yum. I was just picking at this some more while I put away the leftovers. I used plain feta and added garlic and mexican oregano because I couldn't find the herb and garlic blend of feta. We had this with chipotle chicken tonight. Next time I just want to pile it on a fat steak. The lemon/feta/cilantro-ness is really nice. It's not the best time of year for this where I live; I ended up using hothouse tomatoes cuz the romas were wimpy - and good avocados are hard to find right now, but I found some. Thanx, Celeste - every bit as good as I *imagined.* SB:) Read More

This recipe was very good. It's basically guacamole that isn't mashed up with a few add'l ingredients added. What makes it better than guacamole is that you don't need to dip chips in it so it's very healthy! The first time I made it I added the feta cheese but realized that I liked the bites w/o the cheese better so I omitted the cheese the next time. I also didn't add the peppers because I didn't want it spicy. I also used Gourmet Garden Cilantro Herb Blend for the cilantro. I use that in my guacamole too. It's wonderful because it tastes great AND it's already cut and mixed and ready to put into your dish. It provides better all around flavor because it's mixes into the dish easily and well. That's my advertisement for GG Cilantro Herb Blend;-) I would definitely recommend this recipe. It works great as a side salad main dish or on top of meat or fish. It's amazing that something so healthy can taste so good. And the healthy fats in the avocado fill you up. Read More

This was fantastic! Perfect for summer time. I made this to pair with salmon. And it really worked out well. This recipe lends its self to modification. For example I'm not much of a jalapeño lover so I skipped that step. The salad was still bursting with flavor. Thanks you Celeste! Read More
