    Love this recipe. When I want a quick snack I just buy salsa from Costco and put it in the avocado!!!!

    These are sooo good, look impressive and super easy. The only change I made was I didn't use the lime juice and instead used Italian dressing. My husband likes to add a sprinkling of feta cheese to his.

    My new favorite salad recipe. Now have these ingredients always on hand. So simple. I exchange the lime for apple cider vinegar. Same result. You can also change the basil out for diced jalapenos to give it some extra zip!

    Very good and very easy! I added extra virgin olive oil to make it a bit more tasty and so I had more liquid to drizzle over avocados.
