Romaine and Avocado Salad With A Smoky Dressing

  20 rater(s)

What more do you need in a salad than Romaine lettuce and avocado? If the salad was just avocado, we’d be happy. Add the sweet shallots, crunchy pumpkin seeds, and smoky dressing and you’ve got yourself a great combination of flavors. You can eat this salad as a full meal or as a light snack in the afternoon.
