Spring and Summer Sides Series: Avocado Surprise Salad

As you might have noticed in recipes number two and three of this series (Intriguing Dip and Party Cheese Ball) I tend to pick my recipes based on its title.  The final recipe in my Spring and Summer Sides Series is no exception … what’s not to love about an Avocado Surprise Salad?
