Mexican Salad                                                                   4 servings

This is such a simple recipe to make, but it packs lots of flavors.  I remember when I first started making this



salad, avocados were scarce.  Now they are everywhere.


•  2 cups Romaine lettuce, shredded or chopped

•  2 medium tomatoes, chopped

•  2 Tbsp canned green chilies, chopped (optional, but does offer a lot of flavor)

•  ½ cup sliced ripe olives

•  ½ cup sharp Cheddar cheese, fine shred

•  ½ cup corn chips, crushed

•  1large avocado, cut in chunks


 Mix all of the ingredients together, adding the corn chips and avocado last, right before tossing with the dressing.







•  1 tsp finely minced onion



•  ½ cup sour cream

•  2 Tbsp Italian salad dressing

•  ½ tsp sea salt

•  ¾ tsp chili powder


Combine all ingredients; serve over Mexican salad.
