Avocado Salad

Another beautiful day, another reason to enjoy a great salad.  This recipe is slightly adapted from Cook's Country Guacamole Salad.  I slightly modified it to make it work for my family's tastes.  This goes great with a nice juicy steak or along side grilled chicken.  

Avocado Salad

2 Roma Tomatoes, diced
4 Green Onions, sliced
1 Teaspoon Chopped Garlic
1/4 Cup Lime Juice
1/4 Cup Olive Oil
1 Poblano Chili, seeded and sliced into matchsticks
2 or 3 Avacados, pitted, skinned and cubed
1 Tablespoon Dried Cilantro or 1/4 Cup Finely Chopped Fresh Cilantro
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Teaspoon White Pepper 

Step 1:  Make the Dressing.  Combine the garlic, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper in a large bowl.  Let stand for 5 minutes and then whisk in the oil until well blended.

Step 2:  Toss the Salad.  Add chiles, avocados, tomatoes and green onion to the bowl.  Toss gently to combine.  Season with additional salt and pepper as needed.
