    You know what I think? You only live once, so why not use a whole darn avocado. I also used 2 green onions instead of a regular onion. And it was delicious. Lots of flavour and colour.  -  07 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I prefer the apples and beets to be in cut in medium size chunks.  -  20 Mar 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
