“Howdy!” Salad

There are two salads in “my favorite salads collection” that were discovered in Austin stores during tasting events. This one was served to the crowd during the avocado season long, long time ago, in Whole Foods. I always think about it as a transitional flavor combination for people who are not familiar with Mexican, Tex-Mex, or Southern cuisines, as an introduction to our local specialties. It tastes wonderful with or without hot chilies. It is beautiful! It is perfect as a light summer meal, or as a side dish. It works well with grilled meats and poultry, with seafood, different tacos and enchiladas, or just corn chips or tortillas. I served it for informal soft taco breakfast and for formal dinner with broiled lobsters. Always loved!
