Fiesta Salad with Creamy Chipotle Dressing


I made this easy breezy, colorful and healthy salad for a potluck recently. I forgot to take a picture that day, but this is an earlier file picture. Everybody loved it and wanted the recipe, so here it is:

Ingredients:
1 Lettuce head, 2 Tomatoes, 2 Cucumbers, 1 can Sliced olives, Corn (cooked if frozen), mixed peppers (yellow, red, green etc), 1 small bunch green/spring onion, cilantro (optional).

Dressing: 1/2 cup Olive oil, for all of these: sugar, salt and pepper, lime juice/vinegar - add to taste, 2-3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (canned) (as per desired spiciness), 1/4 cup sour cream. Blend everything in a mixer.

Topping: Crushed Doritos chips.

Method: Cut all the vegetables and put them in a salad bowl.Feel free to add other vegetables as per your liking. Pour the dressing over them and add crushed doritos. Mix lightly and serve.

The best part of this salad is that it is highly versatile. You can add or delete pretty much any ingredient as per your taste.

Works great for Cinco de Mayo potlucks!!
