Mexican Chopped Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing

I love salads as much as like steaks:) They are easy to make and almost always filling while they are fresh. So I have a lot of salad recipes. This one is a delicious healthy salad recipe from Self magazine.

It is easy to make and very tasty. However you can change the ingredients to your liking, the recipe makes a great base.

Use romaine lettuce in the salad bowl and then add scoop the salad into the leaves, it makes a great presentation.


2 1/2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 can (15.5 oz) black beans, rinsed and well drained
3/4 cup chopped seeded tomato
3/4 cup chopped peeled jicama
3/4 cup fresh corn kernels, uncooked (or frozen or canned)
3/4 cup thinly sliced radishes
Half a ripe avocado, diced
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese

Honey-Lime Dressing
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp finely chopped fresh cilantro (or more to taste)
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
1 tsp chopped jalapeƱo pepper (use canned for less heat)

Toss all salad ingredients in a large bowl. In separate bowl, mix dressing ingredients.

Pour dressing over mixture and toss again. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Makes 4 servings.
