Notice I rated the average just to be fair with the rating,I am not trying to cheat with my rating! I just needed to add something I should have mentioned which is probably why one veiwer saidit looked horrible. DON'T STIR HARD! MIX AFTER ALL INGREDIENTS ARE IN THE BOWLSO THE AVACADO STAYS TOGETHER! Thanx and enjoy my recipe!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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'.

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.

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....
