Wonderful salad John. I used red onion, red bell pepper for color, lemon instead of lime, parsley instead of cilantro (hate it) my usual garlic and onion powders and served it over some baby spinach. Read how someone rated this low due to under ripe avacados? Don't quite get that, however, just so no one else makes the same mistake, the avacado should be dark and give a bit when you press it. A couple of days in a paper bag on your counter (not in the fridge) will ripen them nicely. Thanks for a great recipe John!

Everything was fine except for GREEN PEPPERS bec. of it's strong taste. OMIT the green peppers, and voila!

Delicious! If you cut your avocado in large enough chunks then even the leftovers won't remind you of quacamole. I used a orange bell pepper to add more color, extra lime juice, dried cilantro (sorry, its all I had!) and added 2T of olive oil.

This was fabulous! It was like a pico de gallo with avocado.

Great recipe that I've seen in another form, with drained can(s) of black beans. Delicious!

Simple dish that showcases avocadoes. I used 4 avocadoes since I was serving 3 of us, and I used more lime juice than was called for to make the dish brighter tasting. I thought the vidalia onion was a great call; it contributed to the flavor of the sald, but didn't overshadow the mild avacado flavor. Thanks for the recipe!

I usually do not save left over salad. But this one I did!!! I really loved this one!!The only thing I changed with this recipe was to add some red pepper along with the green pepper!

REALLY good combination! I chopped the onions, pepper, and tomatoes very small and the avocado into larger chunks, and the result was almost like a chunky guacamole. If the avocadoes are ripe enough next time I make this, I may serve it with baked tortilla chips as a sort of dippable/spreadable salad.
