" Meal in a Bowl " Guacamole Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

This is a great alternative to the traditional taco salad. It truly is a whole meal salad; just add hot, crusty rolls and maybe some white wine and a light desssert for a great luncheon or supper. It goes together quickly, just be sure to have the ingredients chilled. This recipe was given to me by a Hispanic teacher at our school so I tend to think of it as "authentic".

DH and I enjoyed this different way to use tuna for lunch. It was quick, easy, delicious, and quite filling. Particularly enjoyed the avocado dressing. Thanks for posting.
