Romaine Salad with Avocado Dressing

First, THANK YOU! Cookin for my Captain has hit 200 Followers!! Ya'll are awesome!!

I'm looking to do a great giveaway after hitting this mark, so stay tuned!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This was a great lunch for us--and it would serve 4 adults, easily, with these measurements. And it is very filling! Perfect for a weekend lunch in the Spring!
ROMAINE SALAD WITH AVOCADO DRESSING


1 medium ripe avocado
1/2 cup mayonnaise (the real stuff)
1/4 cup canola oil

3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 bunches romaine, torn
2 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (2 1/4 ounce) sliced ripe olives, drained
corn chips

In a [large] food processor, blend the first 6 ingredients until smooth.

In a large bowl, combine the romaine, tomatoes, cheese and olives. Pour dressing over salad; toss to coat.

Sprinkle with corn chips.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The dressing is really thick--so don't add all at once! And don't put chips in until ready to serve--they go soggy fast!

You are so making me want my food processor right now. Hubs broke the canister portion and all I have is the base. Aren't they so handy for so many recipes. This looks delicious :D
