The whole family will love this easy-to-prepare chopped salad, especially because you can substitute any fresh vegetables you like. Swap out the tomatoes for cucumbers, or replace the avocado with carrots. The lettuces can be any combination of leafy greens—try Bibb, arugula, spinach, romaine. The creamy dressing, which is similar to ranch, tastes great and can be prepared up to two days in advance and stored, covered, in the refrigerator. To easily transport this salad to a party, toss the salad ingredients together in a large bowl and make the dressing in a glass jar with a lid (such as a Mason jar). Shake the jar until the dressing is combined, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
