This Southwestern Salad Has the Most Delicious Avocado Dressing

While there are a few ingredients such as lettuce, avocado, and tomato that make this Southwestern salad shine, the ingredients vary from recipe to recipe, making this salad totally customizable.

Prefer red onion over green onion? Swap it out! Are black beans not everybody’s jive? Serve them on the side! Does the grocery store have beautiful ears of corn? Grill them up and leave the frozen stuff for next season.

Using all of the ingredients makes for a stunning veggie-packed salad, but feel free to add your own spin.

A component that does make this salad special is a tangy homemade dressing—it is worth the time it takes for the avocado ripen to perfection.

Plus, it's blitzed up in a blender, which is arguably one of the easiest ways to make a homemade salad dressing!

Can you make this salad in advance? While this salad is best when it is prepared and eaten on the same day, there are a few things you can do ahead of time to make the preparation easier.

The dressing will still be tasty if it is made a day in advance and stored in an airtight container, it just might not be as bright green. Other than the avocado, all of the vegetables can be chopped up and stored in airtight containers for a quick toss the next day.
