People who liked this had 2nd helpings, but others didn't even finish their 1st helping and thought it had a "funny" taste (because of the avacado)and just pushed it around their plates. Mixed review, totally.
Added abit more onion!
I liked it, Mom loved it, Husband thought it was okay. The texture is creamy, the flavor is sweet lime, not overly sweet so it can be a salad or as mom says a dessert. The dressing is something I can live without but it does go well with the jello mold. I loved the texture so smooth and creamy.
