So yummy!! Don't have the Eta Southwest Chipotle Flavoured Dressing in Australia, so I substituted it for the Paul Newmans Dressing South Western Dressing which I'm guessing is kind of similar...It's my go-to salad to take to BBQs :)

Nice. But does make a lot. We were eating it for days!

Love this recipe but really gutted that all of a sudden the Eta dressing seems to be unavailable to buy in NZ (Christchurch anyway). What dressing can I use instead as would hate not to be able to make this anymore...???

Real yummy love the spicy kick in the salad dressing.
But can't find the dressing at the supermarket anymore.
