Scooping out a plate of 7 Layer Taco Salad

I have been on a serious avocado kick lately. I don’t really live in a warm climate for most of the year so when it turns to avocado season I like to eat them until I’m pretty much blue in the face. Or green. Green in the face. I have been putting avocados on pretty much everything, even eating them plain. Including this delicious salad that I have been making for my lunch lately: 7 Layer Taco Salad.

Before we get to the recipe I just wanted to talk about all of the reasons why I have been eating avocados like they are going out of style. Avocados are super healthy and packed with vitamins C, K and folate. Not to mention they contain more potassium than a banana. And if anyone ever says that an avocado is packed with fat, I’m here to tell you it’s the good kind of fat. Yes, there is a good kind of fat. The fat found in avocados actually helps your body to absorb nutrients from other plans foods, making them more beneficial to your body.

This salad is packed with good, fresh ingredients and is perfect to bring to a summer party or just serve your family for dinner. It’s easy to put together and looks beautiful. And the best part is that it features a delicious avocado dressing made with Litehouse Guacamole Herb Blend. This delicious new herb blend features the perfect blend of herbs and spices to create fresh bowls of guacamole, marinate your meats and make delicious dressings for taco salads. It’s quick and easy and turns out delicious.

So let me take a minute to recap this little post: avocados are your friends and it’s easy to turn your salads from drab to fab. Once you try this salad you’ll be happy that you stopped by today!

Does all of that make sense? Avocados are your friend. Let’s get to the recipe!
