To Prepare Salad:

In 4 salad bowls or small plates, distribute iceberg lettuce chunks.  Top with cucumber, tomato, avocado and sliced red onion.  Serve dressing on side.

 

Preparation Tips:

Shallots are small onions that are sweet and mild with a hint of garlic.  Most grocery stores carry shallots in the vegetable aisle near onions and garlic.

 

Tajin is made from Mexican chiles, lime and sea salt.  This tangy, spicy seasoning enhances the taste of avocados and tomatoes.  Just sprinkle on top and try it!

 

If you’re watching your waistline, you can use olive oil and balsamic vinegar to dress your salad.  Then add some Russian dressing on the side.
