Recipe: Avocado-Tomato Salad

2 medium ripe avocados, peeled and cubed
2 c grape tomatoes
1/4 c thinly sliced red onion
1/4 c reduced-fat Italian salad dressing
1 T lime juice
1 t sugar
1/2 t chili powder
1/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper

1.  In a large bowl, combine the avocados, tomatoes, and onion.  In a small bowl, whisk the remaining ingredients.  Pour over avocado mixture; toss gently to coat.

Notes: I made the dressing the night before and refrigerated it.  This worked well (in case you should ever need to save time the day of, like I did).
