Why I Love This Recipe

This salad is so good with Southwest and Mexican dishes. It is also good topped with grilled chicken for a main dish.

Ingredients You'll Need

For Dressing:
1 egg
3/4 c. fresh cilantro
1 clove garlic, cut up
juice of 1 lime
1 t. sugar
½ t. cumin
1/2 c. EVOO
freshly ground sea salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
For Salad:
2 heads romaine lettuce, chopped
2 ears of corn, kernels removed
15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 c. heirloom cherry tomatoes, halved
1 avocado, peeled and diced
4 green onions, thinly sliced.


First make dressing by combining egg, cilantro, garlic, sugar, and lime juice in a blender container. Pulse until smooth. Turn off blender, remove cap, turn blender back on at high speed and slowly pour in oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Put Dressing in a serving bottle and refrigerate until serving. In a large salad bowl put lettuce. Top with corn, black beans, tomatoes, avocado, and red onion. Refrigerate salad until serving. When ready to serve, top salad with dressing (or serve dressing on the side), toss well and serve.
