DIRECTIONS

  • Place the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Prepare the Green Chile Vinaigrette and pour over the salad. Fold gently until dressing is well distributed. Line plates with assorted greens and place pasta salad on top.
  • **For Vinaigrette:
  • Leave the skin on the garlic clove. Roast in a dry hot skillet, turning several times until softened and brown in spots, about 10 minutes. Put all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth and emulsified. Leftovers will keep 4-5 days in refrigerator.
  • ***For Chile Lime Chips:
  • Heat oven to 400 deg. Combine salt & chile powder, mix well. Brush one side of each tortilla with lime juice and sprinkle with salt mixture. Cut into 6 or 8 triangles and place chile side up in a single layer on baking sheets. Bake for 7-8 minute or until browned. Cool and store in a ziploc bag until ready to serve with salads, dips, or sandwiches.
