  • To make dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, cilantro, water, scallion, lime juice, sugar and chili powder until smooth. Transfer to a jar or a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • In a large bowl layer remaining ingredients in order listed; cover and refrigerate.
  • To serve, spoon salad ingredients into a bowl. Shake dressing and then drizzle dressing over salad; toss well to coat.  Yields 8 servings and about 2 cups of salad and 1 1/2 tablespoons of dressing per serving. 
This recipe comes from Weight Watchers and has a Plus Points value of 3 per serving.  This looks good and I will look forward to trying it out.
