    Made for lunch...Yummy! I added a bit of cilantro as well. Gave it more of the guacamole taste.

    I had to reduce the amount of onion though because it was a little too much for me, but other than that it was REALLY good!

    My husband loved this on an english muffin, with a little bit of dijon. He's eaten three of them already. I love the cilantro idea, going to add that to the rest of the mix!

    I had to reduce the amount of onion too. It was very onion-y!

    I added cilantro and turkey bacon crumbles and made a lime vingarette. Served it with crusty bread. Big hit!

    This dish was pretty good, it looks not so good when I made it, but it did taste pretty good, all flavors blend together. I will make this again for sure!!

    This came out well, the avocados we used were a little over ripe and didn't hold up well during the mixing but the flavor was very nice. Perhaps a bit too much onion but overall pleasant. An excellent summer side dish or light lunch.

    Also- I used a sweet onion and fire-roasted tomatoes to take it up another notch- winner!

    Extremely good. Seemed to be missing something though; maybe more real lime juice or a little more salt. I added lime beer salt to my bowl. Was better next day. Avocados stayed firm & fresh w/ recommended lime juice. Will definately make again!

    We didn't like this salad very much, it tasted like guacamole dip.

    I sometimes add this on top of lettuce and sprinkle small strips of dried orange mango to add a sweet/tart taste before adding my vinaigrette dressing. It wakes up the blah taste with bursts of flavor.

    Awesome!! I decided to try it with cilantro on tortilla as well. I only put half of the sweet onion in it. My non-veggie lover children didn't care for it much but my one veggie lover loved it. My hubby and I really enjoyed it. It was very filling!!

    Hi Lacey it is fast, easy, and delicious. It has been my go to meal for years. I have tried some of the other suggestions before like adding cilantro and vinaigrette and it tastes even better. I dont think you can go wrong with adding anything you like to this salad
