Chopped Salad With Avocado Dressing

Dinner, Lunch, Vegan

For a simple and delicious lunch, I made this Chopped Salad with Avocado Dressing.  My ingredients included red and green peppers, corn, grape tomatoes, chopped romaine lettuce, black beans and green onions.  The avocado dressing was creamy and tasty, and the salad had an authentic, Mexican flavor.

I love to buy my fresh veggies, plant based meat substitutes, and other key recipe ingredients  from Whole Foods MarketWegmans and Sprouts Farmers Market.
