Summer Avocado Salad


i've been craving avocado lately & was dying to make a light, summery salad with one. i love the chunky bites of the smooth fruit {yep, it's a fruit not a veggie!} & tang of the lemon & garlic. it's an easy, healthy dish that can be made for one or a party with ease. toss in any other herbs you have around for a low-cal summer side dish!
