I wasn't a fan of this recipe at all. There were too many things going too many flavors or something. I won't make it again but if you're going to try it maybe use less onion. It was a pretty side dish though! Read More

I can see this served at a summer luncheon. I omitted the mayonnaise mostly because I forgot it but honestly I don't think it is needed. I also substituted diced red pepper in place of the black olives to give it some color contrast. The biggest surprise to me was the peas. I wasn't sure how well I would like them but they are a nice addition. This will be added to my summer repertoire. Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was good. I used red peppers instead of the olives and halved the mayonnaise. Ultimately I'm not sure all the additions add much if anything to the avocado. Read More

Made this as a side dish for ribs and chicken. Other than omitting the shrimp I followed the recipe and was very happy with the result. Will be making it again. Read More
