One of the Best Damn Salads You Will Ever Eat!

Okay, I know that there might be one, or maybe (probably not) two, better salads out there in the universe, but trust me on this one.  Give it a try.  I have had it twice in three days and I am going back to the store to get another avocado so I can have it again.  Really.

 What I liked:  Usually I hate salads.  Boring!  But this mix of creamy, crunchy, savory, and sweet has me totally hooked.  It was easy and did not use the traditional paleo oil and vinegar dressing (I am so, so, sick of that).

 I found the recipe on Pinterest and then followed it to this site.  I am going to check out several other recipes from www.cupcakesomg.blogspot.com
