Don't leave anything out of this salad. I thought the walnuts and avocado would make it weird, but they are perfect in the salad. The only thing I changed was using green olives because I ran out of kalamanta. Let it sit for at least an hour before serving for better flavors. It was perfect eaten with some homemade foccacia bread.

I had this salad at my sister's last night. I made her put it back in the fridge so I didn't eat the entire salad, it was so good! The avocado adds a rich taste and texture that is normally missing in a salad with an oil and vinegar dressing. I think it would also be great with chopped, cooked chicken breast for a light supper salad.

This was a delicious recipe! I have made it several times so far since salads are great summer food. Once or twice I used dried basil instead of fresh because my plant was not big enough and it was still delicious. I have also added some roasted red peppers in there and that was a great addition as well. We will continue to make this!
