A tossed green salad made by Elizabeth Hass, just the way Rudolph Hass, owner of the original Hass Avocado tree, loved it. Simple, tasty and full of California Avocados. Made with typically on hand ingredients, so it is easy to prepare without much planning. It is made special by the creamy Fresh California Avocado Dressing. Sliced celery and walnuts add some great crunch.
