Mexican salad

Posted on: February 24th, 2010 by admin No Comments

Continuing on our theme of international salads, this wonderful Mexican style salad is really delicious as a side to maybe chicken and tortillas. We eat it as a meal and it is honestly the most perfect combination of flavors for a salad ever! And so healthy!

  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can garbanzo beans, drained
  • 2 c corn kernels (frozen or tinned)
  • 2 spring onions, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 red capsicum/bell pepper, diced
  • 3 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1/3 c olive oil
  • 1/3 c fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Mix the oil, lime juice, honey and salt and pepper together in a little jar or bowl. Add all the other ingredients to a big bowl and toss with the dressing. Let the salad sit for a little while – an hour or so if you have time, for the flavors to develop.
