I call this Mexican at time, but I also serve this all the time. It is a great healthy salad with a light dressing. Great with just about Everything. Make the dressing ahead and then just make the salad that night. It couldn’t be easier. But it has amazing flavor


  1. 1Make the dressing first. Ok, I take a short cut … I make this in a baggie. Yep a baggie. Add the lime juice, olive oil garlic, garlic, honey, oregano, salt and pepper and shake. Yep that is it. Taste add a little salt and pepper if you want. Just keep in the refrigerator.
  2. 2Ok … if you want add some red pepper flakes to the dressing to add a kick, just optional … it is up to you.
  3. 3Now the salad, Mix in a large bowl the romaine, avacado, shallots, olives and cilantro. Add the dressing and top with the crushed croutons. Perfect Salad!
