Additional Information

For 9 grams of fat and 145 calories per serving, use just one avocado and decrease the oil in the vinaigrette to 2 tablespoons.

When an avocado is cut and its flesh exposed to air, it discolors quickly. So add avocados at the last minute, or brush with lemon or lime juice to minimize discoloration.
