This stuffed avocado salad was inspired by a trip to the Grizzly Cafe in Wrightwood, California. The salad is addictive because of the combination of the creaminess of the avocado paired with the crisp and fresh salad vegetables. It's sure to become one of your favorites. Total Cost of Recipe = $3.00 or $1.50 per serving.
