I decided to make a healthier version at home, with only three ingredients - romaine lettuce, salsa and avocado. I used half mild salsa, half habanero lime salsa, to give it a bit of a kick.
Avocado Salsa Salad
1 bag Dole Classic Romaine Blend
1 avocado, cut into bite-sized chunks
1/2 cup salsa of your choice
1 Bowl with lid (if no lid, plastic wrap will do)
Calorie range (depending on how many calories your salsa contains): 175-200
Prep time: 5 minutes
First, you pour the salad into a bowl. Using half of the salsa, drop spoonfuls onto the salad, to better help distribute. Put lid (or saran wrap) on bowl. Shake for about five seconds. Remove lid.
Next, slice your avocado in half, then make slices in the fruit (surprise, its a fruit!) with your knife. Scoop out the slices with a spoon, and sprinkle on top of the salad. Spoon the rest of the salsa onto the salad. Put lid (or saran wrap) on bowl. Shake for about ten seconds.
Remove lid. Serve immediately. Another five minute recipe from short girl, long island.
Feel free to add other ingredients such as chicken, shredded cheddar cheese, roasted corn or sour cream. Guacamole can be substituted for the avocado, and fat free plain greek yogurt is a healthier stand-in for sour cream. Salads are easy to assemble, filling, and healthy (unless you add unhealthy toppings).
