This salad has all of my favorites combined into one spicy salad.  From avocados and red onion to fresh summer tomatoes  and sauteed banana peppers, this salad packs a healthy and spicy punch.  I also added feta cheese to add some saltiness to the spice as well as tons of fresh basil.  I finished it off with simple splashes of balsamic and apple cider vinegar and a drizzle of olive oil.  It is divine!  I can’t wait for you to serve this surprisingly different salad to your summer cookout guests.
