Laura McAllister devised this spicy dish to please her salad-loving family. “I’m always trying to come up with something new for them so food doesn’t get boring,” she explains. “The kids love eating the salad wrapped in tortillas—it’s also great served over baby spinach that’s been sautéed in a small amount of olive oil.” VT's testers loved it too, and it won 1st place in our 2007 reader recipe contest.

  • 1 avocado, cubed (1 cup)
  • 2 Tbs. lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tbs. red wine vinegar
