Mexican Salad

A little while ago we had some good friends over for a mexican feast! I really wanted to make a salad from scratch and came up with this recipe, it was delicious and our guests absolutely LOVED it!



Decent sized bunch of cos lettuce, chopped (leaves only)

1 can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

1 red capsicum, chopped in small cubes

2 roma tomatoes, chopped in small cubes

1/2 red onion, finely chopped

100g corn, fresh or frozen (left out to defrost)

1/2 continental cucumber, chopped in small cubes

A decent handful of corriander, chopped (leaves only)



1/2 cup fresh lime juice

2 tbs olive oil

1-2 garlic cloves (minced)

pinch salt

pinch pepper



1.) Add all ingredients for the salad into a bowl and toss gently until all combined

2.) In a small jug, add all dressing ingredients and whisk until all combined

3.) Pour dressing over salad and toss again

DRESSING NOTE: Please be advised that depending on your taste buds you may want to add a little more of certain ingredients to perfect it – taste, add and then taste some more!

SALAD NOTE: The amounts are just a rough guide, you can add more or less of something as you wish.
