Clean Mexican Salad with Lime Dressing


Who’s excited for summer?!!  Yippee!  This has been a looong winter and I’m sure that we are all ready for some summer in our lives!  I don’t know about you, but I love summer food!  I love BBQ’S and fresh produce from the Farmer’s Market!  This salad is fresh and delicious- the perfect way to kick off summer!



1/4 Cup olive oil

1/4 Cup white balsamic vinegar

Juice from one lime

Rind of one lime

2 Minced garlic cloves

1/4 Tsp sea salt

1 Tbsp minced cilantro


1 Can corn

1 Head romain lettuce

1/2 Cup baby tomatoes

1 Can black beans

1 Diced avocado

1 Cup broken tortilla chips


Mix all dressing ingredients together and pour over the salad or serve it on the side of the salad.

Layer the ingredients for the salad starting with the romaine lettuce.  Be sure to wash and throughly dry the black beans or else it will make your salad soggy!

I hope you enjoy this delicious fresh summer salad!  It’s a favourite in our home!
