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

"Very good. Very garlicky. I might use only one clove of garlic next time. I was out of lemons so maybe that's why the dressing was so strong. Still very delicious. I added extra olives and extra tomatoes. The corn chips are a must have - I ended up using Doritos too."

"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."

"My family loved the salad! I didn't use all the dressing. I thought it would be over dressed. We used the leftover for a sandwhich spread. FABULOUS!!!"

"Great salad. I agree that the corn chips aren't needed. The dressing is the key but don't over dress."
