    P4's Note:

    This is a perfect summertime main-course salad. Cool and refreshing, and you can make it up to a day ahead of time, so you don't have to prepare it during the heat of the day. It's also a good buffet dish, or picnic dish. It travels very well. This is one of my favorite summer meals.

    5. 5
      Whisk together all the ingredients for the dressing, and pour over top of the salad, then toss again.

      The salad should be covered and refrigerated for at least 3 hours, but is better if left overnight.

      To serve, arrange the lettuce leaves in a shallow bowl, spoon the salad on top, garnish with avocado slices.
    8. 8
      Notes: Please don't leave out the cilantro or jalapeno.

      This is not a spicy dish, but those items are very important.

      I just happened to have all the ingredients, so I tried this recipe. It was very good. I wouldn't go out and buy these items to make this, but if you happen to have most of these ingredients on hand - it is definitely worth it.
