This colorful salad looks great on a buffet table and tastes even better. The crunchy corn chips are a nice change from croutons. —Sandra Forsyth, Edmonton, Alberta

"We LOVE this salad and use the extra dressing for chip dip. Yum Yum"

Reviewed Jan. 29, 2013

"I made this recipe because of the great reviews but I have to say, I really disagree with comments. The dressing flavor-wise was way too heavy on the fats. The mayo really kills the avocado taste. I won't be making this dud again."

"I make extra dressing to use on Carne Asada sandwiches, not being a taco person. Everyone loves it, and we have some picky eaters."

"I love this dressing! Actually didn't make the rest of the salad, just serving it with mixed greens, avocado and feta, but it would be delish with anything. I might try a couple T. less mayo and a large avocado instead."

"Very good! I sprinkle some cheddar cheese on when tossing the salad together. Have used both tortilla chips and corn chips - both are good! Light mayonnaise seemed to work fine as well."
