Recipe Notes

**Cardinal Rule** Toss the diced avocado with a little lime or lemon juice to prevent them from getting brown before you serve the salad.

BONUS**Cardinal Rule**  Not sure what to do with the leftover seasoning mixes?  Combine either of the seasonings with plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream) to make a quick dip for veggies/pretzels/chips!
