1 can green or black pitted olives
3 tomatoes, diced
¼ of a red onion, chopped
3 heads romaine lettuce, washed and chopped for salad
2 avocados, diced
Tortilla chips, broken in pieces
1 ½ cup mayonnaise
7 oz. good quality salsa
1/3 cup ketchup
1 teaspoon chili powder
Mix dressing ingredients together and shake well. Pour over salad right before serving. Add chips and toss again. Serve immediately.
* Serving note: I like to serve this salad in small clay pots (yes, the ones you put plants in). Wash them thoroughly and put a little foil in the hole in the bottom so nothing drops out while serving. The terra cotta color gives a rustic and ethnic appearance. In the spring and summer they are very inexpensive at stores like Home Depot, Target, Walmart or any nursery.
