We enjoyed some Mexican food for our family celebration for fathers day meal. Mexican food is always a hit at our house. We really enjoyed this salad. I love how colorful it is. It is nice to stir just before eating.
3 C washed lettuce greens * (I used spinach)
2 cans of drained and rinsed black beans
1 /2 C green onions chopped
1/4 C red onion diced
1 can green chilies
1/2 C chopped washed cilantro
4 chopped up Roma tomatoes
2 cans shoe peg white corn
1/2 C grated cheese *optional
4 ripe avocados
1/2 tsp salt
juice from 2 limes
1/2 C olive oil
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 C plain yogurt
5 cloves of garlic
Serve with tortilla chips if desired
Directions serves about 15
1. In a large bowl place greens. (You could leave out the greens if desired either way is yummy.)
2. Then put the remaining ingredients in sections on top of the greens. Cover with plastic until ready to serve.
3. Pour all the ingredients into the blender and pulse until creamy. It may take a little stirring in between pulsing. You can store covered in fridge until ready to serve.
4. Right before eating toss int the dressing into the salad. We enjoyed it with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
