"I got this wonderful recipe from a friend several years ago. It's a great main dish salad for hot weather. I usually double it for my family so we can eat the leftovers for lunch the next day."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I followed the recipe exact only leaving out the avocado (I am sorry, I just do not like it). I did use BROWN rice and fresh lime juice. This salad was AMAZING. No leftovers, we ate every single bit of this salad.
Delicious! I cut down on the oil and added black beans and it was still wonderful. Thanks for sharing.
Very tasty, good for a light lunch.
Excellent summertime recipe! Made it following recipe with minor changes. Instead of using plain white rice, I use some leftover Mexican Rice I had on had, which turned out great and gave it even more flavor. Due to personal preference, I cut back the amount of Jalapeno I used to only 1/3 the pepper and the Chili Powder to only 1/4 tsp, which was spicy enough for our palates. I also used half the amount of Cilantro recipe called for as I felt entire amount would've given it too strong of a flavor. Husband loved it and said this recipe's a keeper and I agree with him!
Tried this recipe this past weekend. I like the recipe because it is very nutritious for you. However, it is a little on the bland side if you make the salad exactly by the recipe. If I make the recipe again, I will add more salt and more lime juice to give it a little more kick.
Loved this recipe! Added cucumber and peppers to the lettuce mix. The dressing is so delicious.
OMG, this was fabulous! While grilling dinner the night before, I threw on two chicken breasts too. I also made the rice the night before (brown rice) as well as combining the ingredients for the dressing. In the morning, I put all of the ingredients together (except for the avocado) and poured the dressing on and let it sit all day while I was at work. When I got home, I shredded some lettuce, diced the avocado and dinner was ready! And boy was it delicious - very similar to Chipotle. Leftovers today for lunch and they were just as good. I did add a can of black beans and will probably reduce the amount of oil next time since I don't think it needs that much but other than that, I will make this often! I'm thinking I will make a double batch of this on a Sunday and have delicious lunches for me and my husband during the work week. Excellent and full of flavor!
My husband and I loved the flavour and will definitely add it our regular meals. Kids, not so much. They found the cilantro taste too strong so I will try cutting back in that next time. Overall it is a delicious healthy dinner.
