Awesome salad! I only put half the olive oil and just a little extra lime juice, and I added a cup of canned pinto beans...just because I was in the mood. Served with tortilla strips on top for some crunch, and it was perfect. I can't wait to make it for our family on vacation!
Very light, I love avacodo and like all the other ingredients but this just wasn't something I liked.
As guacamole salads go, this was average, but as salads in general go, it was great. I tweaked it a bit: used half the avocado (I like a salad to have more of a varied texture), fresh garlic, fresh roasted green chiles instead of jalapenos, and just a drizzle of olive oil (the avocados add enough of a creamy texture). I thought it could have used more lime juice for more of a vinegary bite, but my lime was pretty dry. I added hot sauce, and that put it over the edge.
Very good salad. I did not use as many avocados. I chopped up one avocado for the salad and mashed 1/2 of another avocado with the seasoning and used it as a dressing. (I omitted the olive oil.) I will make this again. It was tasty and creamy and very filling.
I would say it's one of the best guacamole salad for me. I'm not a lettuce fan and this suited me well! I'll be sure to make this one again.
What I did with this recipe was omit the cucumber and the jalapeno for my kids and just mashed the avacado and added all the other ingrediants but only a tablespoon of olive oil and made it like a guacamole dip with corn. I had it for dinner one night with corn tortillas and I smeared it on with some grilled chicken and crushed tortilla chips and it was terrific!!
I thought this tasted pretty good. I liked all of the texture and the color. It would make a nice side dish to a grilled flank steak or something similar. I made a 1/2 recipe to try it and got about 3 servings. I used frozen defrosted corn, peeled seedless cucumber cubed, and added the minced red onion and the lime juice to taste. I realized after I made it I forgot to add the garlic salt and didn't add the jalepeno to keep the heat off. I might just sprinkle some garlic salt on top. It is definitely a make fresh kind of salad too.
