Southwestern Chopped Salad with Creamy Cilantro-Lime Dressing
If the original author would have contacted me in the first place, this could have been handled differently. It was reported and blogger took this post down.
Hopefully I have now complied with the rules-good grief!
Large head of romaine
15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 large orange bell pepper
1 pint cherry tomatoes
2 cups corn (I used frozen, thawed)
5 green onions
Creamy Cilantro-Lime Dressing* or other dressing of choice
Finely chop romaine, bell pepper, tomatoes, and green onions.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine.
Toss with desired dressing.
*Creamy Cilantro-Lime Dressing
1 cup loosely packed cilantro, stems removed and roughly chopped
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice (about 1/2 lime)
1-2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 tsp. white vinegar
1/8 tsp. salt
Puree all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.
Oh yes, another good salad. Perfect summer meal!
