Grape tomatoes and avocado chunks add pretty color and fresh flavor to this main-dish salad from our home economists. In a pinch, substitute half-and half or milk for the whipping cream, adding a teaspoon at a time until you get the desired consistency.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 20, 2012

This is a great salad and very fast to make. Be warned though, the dressing does not keep; but luckily it just makes a small amount so you can make a fresh batch if needed.
