Tomato Stack Salad with Corn and Avocado

     This week our bi-weekly recipe swap, hosted by A Taste of Home Cooking, had a side dish theme.  While I cook new entrees almost every week I find that I cook the same side dishes over and over again so I was looking forward to something new.  I received a recipe for Tomato Stack Salad with Corn and Avocado from Cookaholic Wife

      I had chicken fajitas on our weekly menu plan this week so I thought this would be a great side dish to accompany them.  I love the bright colors in the salad.  The red, yellow, green, and white of the dressing make it a really beautiful salad.

      I’m not a tomato fan so I ate the inside of the salad which was really delicious.  The creamy dressing, crunchy bacon, and corn are a wonderful pairing.  My husband tried the entire salad and said that the tomato was perfect with the avocado and bacon.  This salad is so pretty and would be great as a side dish or appetizer when company is over.
