Schulz's Guacamole Salad

Avocados, and consequently guacamole, are one of those foods I could eat daily. I can't think of a more delicious way to add some healthy fats to your diet! My mom tried this recipe for the first time while we were home last weekend and we all loved it. She has no clue where it came from, it was ripped out of some newspaper a long time ago. It's a fun variation on a salad, and any guacamole lovers will love this! I think I'll make this as a main dish sometime and add some chicken or shrimp, as well as some peppers.
