This is a beautiful salad full of bright colors and flavors I originally created without avocado, however the addition of it makes the dish simply sensational; the perfect summer salad!

I made this salad for a dinner party last night. There is so much to love about this salad - it's crunchy, colorful, tasty and healthy. I forgot to add the almonds, which I think would have been great in the salad. I did add more ginger and garlic than called for and in the end, I added about 1 tablespoon of EVOO. It was really, really good. Everyone loved it. Next time, I would use a yellow bell pepper rather than orange since there was already lots of orange color from the carrots. Avocado took this over the top.

I made this with toasted macadamia nuts and a hint of pineapple juice in the dressing while in Hawaii - pure ALOHA!
