How to Purchase Avocados

Select avocados based on when you will be using them. Select softer avocados if you will be using them right away, and firmer avocados for later use. Let firmer avocados stand at room temperature until desired ripeness. Small light brown markings on the skin are normal and won't affect the quality of the fruit.

    I have a picky family and they loved it so much that they have asked me to make it again, so I will be making it this weekend!

    how about trying this with a honey mustard or a dijon vinegarette dressing. Seems it would go better than italian dressing.

    Must comment again. I've made this many times and I think it is excellent.
