By

WW 3 Points Plus. I mixed all ingredients except for lettuce & let sit overnight. Portioned out veggie mix and added to lettuce for 1 serving. For a main meal add chicken, pork or salmon, adjusting the points value.

Preparation

Step 1

To make dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, cilantro, water, scallion, lime juice, sugar and chili powder until smooth. Transfer to a jar or a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate until ready to use.

In a large bowl or food storage container, layer remaining ingredients in order listed; cover and refrigerate.

To serve, spoon salad ingredients into a bowl. Shake dressing and then drizzle dressing over salad; toss well to coat. Yields about 2 cups of salad and 1 1/2 tablespoons of dressing per serving.

Notes
Storing this salad in layers (instead of tossing it immediately) and keeping the dressing separate, helps to keep the salad fresh. It can be stored up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
