I made this dish for a potluck with my neighbors and everyone loved it. I left the avocadas on the side along with some lime flavored tortilla strips. This recipe has a great flavor and I loved the simple ingredients. This would be a great picnic dish. Thanks for the post.

This was great when I needed a quick potluck dish. I had to do without cilantro, but otherwise, I made the dressing as written. Used a can of diced tomatoes in place of the grape tomatoes, and didn't have an avocado, but it was still great. Next time I'll add both cilantro and avocado, because I think it would be even better.

LOVED this recipe! I am always on the quest for recipes with a texmex/southwestern feel, and when I had to bring a pasta salad to a luncheon, this one hit the spot! I doubled it, and didn't bother with the avocado (although I love them) or the chips, and still was delish!
