Romaine Salad with Avocado Dressing

I have a confession to make. I’m a terrible vegetarian. I don’t really like…vegetables. I’ll eat some broccoli here and there, and some carrot sticks, but a plate full of veggies just doesn’t appeal to me, and I’ve never enjoyed salad. So when I came across this  recipe in Taste of Home magazine, I was thrilled to have found a salad that I like. It makes a delicious light meal, or you can serve it on the side. And if you make too much dressing, I’ve discovered that it also doubles as a scrumptious dip for chips.
