Hi Guys, today I’ll show you how to make a Mexican Salad. It’s very healthy and full of flavor.
Slice 1 small bunch of Romaine Lettuce into small pieces. Drain 1 15 oz can of black beans, rinse them and place them in a bowl. Add 1 cup of cooked sweet corn, you can use fresh, frozen or canned. This is ½ medium red onion diced small. 1 cup of chopped tomatoes, make sure you take most of the seeds out of the tomatoes, otherwise it’s too much liquid in the salad. And ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro. Now I’ll make the dressing. The juice of 2 limes – about ¼ cup total, 2 tbsps olive oil or vegetable oil, 1 tsp finely minced garlic,1 tsp salt, ½ tsp sugar. I also have some finely minced jalapeno – this is 1 jalapeno with the seeds taken out. The jalapeno is optional, I’m adding it because I like the heat from the jalapeno. Leave it out if you don’t want heat. Whisk this really well, you could also pour it in a jar and shake it up. Mix the dressing into the vegetables. Put the lettuce on a plate and top with the vegetables. Optional is some grated cheddar for those who like cheese in their salad. A cut up avocado is also a nice topping.
