Taco SaladThere are a couple places here that serve a chipotle lime dressing on their salads. Its one of my favourites. Then last weekend we went to a taco place and had a salad that was so good I had to give a try at duplicating it. Tonight I think I got it down pretty well. I used a mix of the broccoli slaw thats available and crunchy green lettuce, which I found (at the taco place) had great texture. I made a batch of chipotle lime dressing and think the flavour is pretty much dead on with my favourite salad place. Though mine seemed a bit spicier.

I tossed in half of an avocado, diced. Topped it with some shredded cheese, a scoop of fresh made pico de gallo, some taco beef (shrimp would have been yummy too!), a dollop of sour cream, and a sprinkle of tajin.

Below are the recipes for the dressing and for the pico de gallo.
