Healthy Mexican Salad

Mexican salad is a vibrantly colored salad typically dressed with a tangy and slightly spicy lime-based vinaigrette. The salad is distinctly made with fresh local ingredients like corn, beans, jicama, and avocado. While Mexican salad can be eaten on its own, it is also perfect with any Mexican entrée, as a topping on nachos or chips, with any grilled dish, as a wonderful side for burgers or to stuff in flour tortillas. If you are planning on a Mexican themed party or dinner, this amazingly healthy and absolutely delicious Mexican salad will be a sure hit. Serve it in taco bowls or top it with crunchy tortilla strips for an enticing presentation.


This recipe takes about 20 minutes to make. Serves 3 to 4.

• 200 grams of lettuce, cut into bite-sized pieces
• 2 tomatoes, chopped
• ½ cup of charred corn kernels
• ½ cup of boiled kidney beans
• 1 avocado, diced

• 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
• 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander leaves
• 3 garlic cloves – minced
• 2 tsp dried oregano
• 3 tbsp lemon juice
• ¾ tsp cumin powder
