    Christmas Carol's Note:

    This is a deliciously different type of taco xalad which includes chicken, avocado, and a tantalizing taco-flavored dressing. It's a very classy salad and a Pillsbury Bake-Off winner. Blue tortilla chips accompanying this dish adds the final touch of authentic Mexican flair!

      The salad dressing is a unique addition to this taco salad. I used already cooked and shredded chicken that I marinated in the dressing for several hours. Nice on a warm summer evening.

      I made half this recipe for 2 of us and it is very good. I used cooked chicken so I 'marinated' the cubed chicken with half the vinaigrette until I was ready to put the salad together. We did individual salads and I can't imagine displaying/serving the salad as shown. It's a fabulous presentation but how can you get all of what you want onto your plate/bowl? I actually added a little salsa but it didn't need it. Cubed Avocado would be better than sliced for individual salads. Also more olives than called for.
