As always, I love your recipes, Kansasgirl! I've not tried oranges with avacadoes in mine, but will now. I usually combine them with papayas or mangos.

Hi Audeo - are you a transplant from FN or a DC native? I think I might try mangoes in it next time - that sounds wonderful!

Kansasgirl, I was the grateful recipient of many of your recipes and sound advise from FN. And mangoes are great with avacado!

Good to see you here.

We eat that all the time! The dressing is a bit different, but same idea.
I also add bleu cheese crumbles to it :)

As most here know, avocados are "it" for me!
.......even more than chocolate! :shock:
