  1. Toss lettuce and dressing from the kit together, reserving about 1 teaspoon of the dressing. Set croutons, cheese and any other salad kit ingredients aside (if included).
  2. Arrange dressed lettuce in a round face shape on 4 small salad plates.
  3. Use 3 croutons for each salad to create “eyes” and “noses”.
  4. Arrange 2 slices of avocado end to end on each salad to create a big “smile”. Drizzle a stripe of the reserved dressing on the avocado slices to accent the smile.
  5. Arrange chicken strips and any remaining ingredients from the salad kit along the top and sides of the lettuce to create a hairstyle for the salad happy face.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
