This recipe tastes better than it looks...but only a little bit. I definetely would not reccommend this to anyone. It looked so unappetizing that I almost didn't even taste it. Read More

OMG THIS WAS AWESOME!! I made this at the last minute and made to recipe exactly as stated. I let it chill for about 45 minutes and it was so good that's all I ate for dinner. I would suggest using avocados that are slightly green so they are not too soft when you are mixing. Also only make enough for what will be eaten at that meal. The avocado's naturally start to brown when cut and the salad is not visually appealing the next day! Good lord this tasted delicious!! Thank you for the recipe! Read More

This was very good and tangy. I'd add cherry tomatoes or red pepper - just something to give it a little splash of color since a little boring to look at. Read More

This was yummy! My husband loved it. I was looking for a recipe that I could make to use up my avocados and cilantro yet not make guacamole. This did the trick. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for sharing. Read More

I'm not a big fan of avocado but I had some leftover to use up and the flavours in this salad were pretty good I have to say. It is also good with the addition of a diced hard boiled egg or two. Looks great served inside a lettuce leaf 'cup'. Read More

Fantastic summer salad! I had a tomato that I needed to use before it was bad so chopped that up and put it in, and used red onions, since I didn't have any green in stock. I used one fresh lime and a big handful of cilantro. I didn't have any fresh lemon, but it was so delicious without it. I will make this again...and again.... Read More

I need to try this recipe again with a riper avocado. It was not bad tasting but it didn't blow me away. I did add some cumin and red pepper to give it some kick. Read More

I've made this a few times now and we've substituted thinly sliced red onion for the green onion and usually use only lime (no lemon). I also add a bit of honey because I like the sweetness to bring out the salty and sour. Guests love it too. Once I even had to use the cilantro in the tube instead of fresh because the store didn't have any fresh and it turned out great. Read More

This was very good. I loved the contrasting textures of the crispy cucumber and the creamy avocado. Such a simple dressing too! I tossed it with chopped arugula and the flavors combined beautifully. Definitely a keeper. Read More
