The beauty of this salad is all in how you arrange the ingredients. I like to spend time laying things out nicely before I eat when I have the time. It's a very quick salad that's healthy, nutritious, and full of fresh flavors. It also packs well as a lunch for work. Just rub the lemon on the avocado before you seal it up to prevent browning.
