Get the kids out of the room, we’re getting sexy up in here.

This salad has so many flavors and textures you’ll want to eat it undressed–the salad that it. That’s right–you don’t even need dressing – the lime juice and avocado provide the fat and acid you would normally get from oil and vinegar. The colors are vibrant and fresh.  This makes one huge entrée salad or 3 small ones.
