    This looks and sounds SO good! I bet it would also be delicious with feta, depending on what kind of flavor you’re in the mood for.

  2. This sounds really good! I definitely want to try this out. 🙂

  3. I love avocados too, but don’t cook/make salads with them enough! This looks wonderful, love the addition of vinegar and limes for some acidity!
