    Just wanted to say hi and that I hope the surgery goes well! A friend of mine has her son's third heart surgery this year and I can't imagine the roller coaster of emotions! I'll check in with Ebby for updates. You are amazing…I don't know how you do everything!

    It seems like you certainly have a lot going on right now, so thank you for still posting!! That goodie basket looks fantastic, along with your avocado and red onion! I just made a raspberry, mango, and avocado salad last night that had red onions in it. When my mom and I are the only ones home, I can get really creative with dinner πŸ™‚ But good luck on your upcoming week, and I'll keep your son in my thoughts. Surgery is never fun.

    When things are simple and summery, I am happy! This salad definitely fits both descriptions! I love it πŸ™‚ I also love Trader Joes and am seriously in awe of your ability to juggle so much at once! You are impressive, girl! I hope your son's surgery goes well, and that you find peace in the days leading up to it.

    Thinking of you as your son's surgery comes up! Love this simple salad…and love TJs. They're not in TX yet, so I always make a stop when we're in a city with TJs. Can't wait to stock up on a few favorites when I'm in Chicago next month!!

    Using your recipes more and more. They are so fun to cook with my husband and to use for entertaining guests. Miss you lots chica. Thinking of you often.

    Simple and easy. Sometimes these just make the tastiest recipes!! My girlfriend had an Avacado salad made in peru very similar to this, but it has diced tomato and lime juice. I recommend it to anyone!

    I totally understand when you say you want it over, but you don't want the surgery to happen at all. Ive been in that exact position too. I can remember one time reciting a line from the movie Madeleine – I can do anything over and over. I will be thinking of you and your son.

    I adore Trader Joes and am so disappointed that I live thousands of miles away from one. I mean they already have the island-theme uniform, couldn't they just open one near me? Your give-away looks amazing.

    I was scrolling though and looked at the picture w/o reading the entry first and I was trying to figure out what on god's green earth you were making with all that stuff from trader joe's and thinking "I just cannot imagine that would taste good…" LOL

    Thinking of you as you prepare for your son's surgery. I can't imagine how hard that must be… And thank you for posting all of the Trader Joe products. Can you believe I have never been? But they are opening a store close to us and I have been trying to find recommendations of what to purchase. All of these look great!

    I love your blog! I made those oreo cream cheese cookie bars a while ago and everyone devoured them. Including me!

    Good thing I love reading your blog, or I wouldn't have noticed my previous comment didn't post!

    My girlfriend ate a similar salad in Peru, but with lime and salt sprinkled on top instead of olive oil and vinegar. Sometimes something this simple can just be delicious! Thanks for sharing.

    Just wanted to say that I made this salad tonight to go with our steak and veggies. Sadly (or happily, if you are my husband), it never even made it to the table because my husband ate the entire thing before I could even get it on the table!!!! Thanks for sharing.

    I love anything with avocado!! The salad looks great, even though I would probably just pick out the onions and eat the avocados LOL
