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

MY REVIEW
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.

MY REVIEW

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.
