Healthy Southwest Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing combines my favorite southwest flavors with a creamy, yet good-for-you dressing.



Salad Ingredients:

  • 8 cups mixed lettuce (baby romain and green leaf)
  • 1 diced green onion
  • 115.5 ounce can black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1/21 red pepper (diced)
  • 1/21 yellow pepper (diced)
  • Fresh cilantro (diced, to taste)

Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1/3 cup plain or Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • 3 tsp lime juice
  • 3/4 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 2 Tbsp water


  1. Toss all salad ingredients together in a large bowl.
  2. Combine dressing ingredients in a blender and process until smooth (try my mason jar trick and you can store it in the same container).
  3. Serve salad with dressing and a few tortilla chips.
