Loved this recipe. I made it as part of my New Year's Eve dinner and it went down very well. I used homemade croutons which I made with garlic infused oil. Yum!

Made this tonight. I'm not a massive avocado fan but this was lovely, i thought the avocado would be stodgy but it actually cleansed the pallet. Made it with red gem lettuce and rocket and it held the dressing well. Seved it with Saras chilli (also from this site)
