I am very excited today ~ I have tickets to see Paula Deen this afternoon. She’s doing a show at a cooking expo here in town. I am dragging DH with me since I go plenty of places with him that I think are boring, LOL! I’m bringing my camera and I’ll post pics tonight.
On to the recipe. I love this salad! In fact, I made it 2 days in a row. DH, who hates avocados, couldn’t get enough of it. The dressing tastes like smooth guacamole. You can put whatever you like in the salad.
1 head lettuce, torn
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese or monterey jack cheese
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/2 cup chopped black olives
4 medium tomatoes
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, mashed
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 cup crushed tortilla or corn chips
Combine the lettuce, cheese, green onions, black olives and tomatoes in a salad bowl and toss to mix well.
Combine the avocado, lemon juice, sour cream, oil, sugar, garlic salt, and chili powder in a blender container and process until smooth.
Pour over salad and toss to mix well.
Stir in corn chips just before serving.
