Southwestern Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing

Jump to Recipe

This Southwestern Salad is an easy, delicious and filling recipe. This recipe is inspired by the Farmer’s Fridge salads that I love to get when I am in the office.

You can adjust the amount of olive oil for a thinner dressing. I didn’t want mine too thick so that’s what the recipe here reflects. Either way, this goes so perfectly in this Tex-Mex style salad loaded with corn, beans, tomatoes, avocado and tortilla strips. It’s quickly become a favorite of ours, and we’ve had it almost every day this week!
