Health Rating

Ingredients


2 head Lettuce, romaine (finely chopped)
1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (chopped)
1 cup Grape tomatoes (cut into eighths)
1 green onion (stem) Green onion, scallion, ramp (green part sliced)
1/2 cup Cilantro (coriander) (chopped)
1 cup Freeze dried sweet corn (thawed)
1 cup Black beans, canned
1 avocado(s) Avocado
1 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup Cilantro (coriander) (chopped)
2 fruit Lime (juiced)
1/8 tsp Sea salt
1 tsp Garlic (minced)
5 tbsp Water
1/4 tsp Tabasco sauce (or more to taste)

Instructions


1. Put all ingredients for the salad in a large bowl and use two large forks to toss well.

2. To prepare the dressing:

  • Put the flesh of the avocado, olive oil, cilantro, lime juice, salt, 3 tablespoons water, garlic, and the Tabasco sauce into a blender or mini-food processor. (I used my small Magic-bullet-like blender)
  • Process until the dressing is very smooth.
  • Add more water if needed for desired consistency (it will depend on the size of your avocado and how thick you like your dressing).
  • You can dress the salad and then serve, or allow each person to put the amount of dressing they desire on their individual salads. Enjoy!


3. Extra dressing can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for a few days.
