Guacamole Greens Salad with a Jalapeno Lime Cilantro Dressing


One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is to recreate restaurant favorites at home. This is my copycat Sweet Green Guacamole Greens salad and I'm pretty sure I'll be making this on a weekly basis from now on. Sweet Green lovers you know the addiction is REAL.

This salad is significantly cheaper to make at home and I think my Jalapeno Cilantro Lime dressing might give Sweet Green a run for their money!
