MySecret Recipe Club blog assignment this month is Jenny's Cookbook. Jenny started her blog as an opportunity to expand her recipes and photos. Jenny, her husband and two children live in Toronto and love to visit farms to pick fresh fruits and vegetables. She has some great recipes on her blog and I sure enjoyed searching for just the right recipe to share with you today.Her Southwest Salad with Avocado Dressing was adapted from a Rachael Ray recipe and I had a lot of fun with the recipe.
