Mexican Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing

Mexican-salad-with-Creamy-Avocado-DressingThe creamy avocado dressing makes this salad worth of center stage.  Mexican salads are great.  Feel free to alter ingredients as you wish based on your likes.  I like to put a few tablespoons of spicy salsa on top just before serving.  The spicy salsa offers a wonderful contrast to the creamy avocado dressing.

Serve this salad at your next lady’s lunch or as a side to a bowl of chili.
