To be honest, I was not expecting much of this salad. But when I got that first scoop, I was so surprised. The flavors of the salad with the vinaigrette are amazing. It is great for any picnic, potluck, or any party. You can serve it right away, but letting it chill for an hour or two will allow the flavors to marry, just be sure to add the avocado just before serving to avoid browning.
