- Prep all your produce ingredients and place everything except the avocado, peanuts and dressing into a large bowl. (The goal is to add the avocado and peanuts last so they don’t fall to the bottom of the bowl when tossed.)
- Whisk the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside.
- Now add the avocado and the dressing to the rest of the ingredients. Lightly toss. Sprinkle with crushed peanuts and serve promptly. Serving Suggestions: Serve as a side salad, or top with a few slices of chicken or steak and make it a main dish. *Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
