Avocado Artichoke Salad

Avocado Artichoke Salad

I have a lot of favorites on this site (I mean why would I share anything less) but THIS salad always takes the cake.  Each time I make it I’m reminded why I love it so much, which then leads to a week long binge because I just can’t get enough!  It’s tangy, yet creamy (thank you avocado) and the perfect side dish to a weeknight, back deck dinner.  The combination of lemon and lime juice together creates a salty taste so just be mindful when seasoning at the end.  This lemon and lime trick is great for those on a salt restricted diet as well!
