Guacamole Salad

Betty Graves


Wow....The flavors in this recipe is so wonderful. I was watching the cooking show and saw this recipe that Barefoot Contessa was making. I made it and my family ask for it ever since, especially when we have family picnics. You can also serve when you are preparing your Mexican dinner.
