6 servings (serving size: about 1 cup salad and 4 teaspoons avocado)

Adding five vegetables and one fruit—avocado—to the romaine lettuce rounds out the nutrition in this side dish salad.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 5 ingredients in a small bowl. Gradually add oil, stirring with a whisk.

Step 2

Combine lettuce and the next 6 ingredients (through squash) in a large bowl. Drizzle dressing over lettuce mixture, and toss gently to coat. Top with avocado.

Coming from someone who does use dressing on salads, this one is very blah-bland. After cutting up all those vegetables, the dressing fell short on taste; disappointment. The lettuce wilted a few minutes after tossing with the dressing. This salad has potential, but only if using another dressing recipe.

Excellent salad recipe. I never use dressing but I love the dressing on this one. We subbed cherry tomatoes for the yellow pear tomatoes because they were unavailable.
