I get great satisfaction from re-purposing leftovers. Often when planning dinner I already know what I will be making for lunch and dinner the next day with the leftovers. When I was grilling the chili cilantro lime chicken I made last week I was already dreaming up this yummy and gorgeous salad that would be dinner the next night. I went low carb with this salad (minus the fresh corn) but you could also add black beans to this salad which would be delicious. The best part of course is the dressing – a smooth, creamy, spicy and fresh avocado dressing that gets whipped up in the food processor in no time and is the perfect complement to this salad. Enjoy!
Add all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
Arrange all the ingredients into a big bowl, pour the dressing over, toss and serve.

avocado in dressing does the dressing not turn black/brown bc of the avocado inside?
can i make it in advance?
The lemon in the dressing will prevent it from turning black.
THe lime juice should help. It shouldn’t be made too much in advance.
