Mexican chopped salad
May 6 2021
When it is cinco de Mayo (or any other holiday or celebration for that matter) I like to come up with recipes to celebrate the day... Here is an easy salad that gets elevated with the cilantro lime dressing! I have to admit that the toasted salted pepitas really give it a nice crunch!!! It would have been even better if I had some jicama to add as well... Well next time for sure!
Wash and chop the lettuce. Cut the cucumber and avocado into small cubes and thinly julienne the watermelon radish.
Arrange it all in a bowl, add the corn.
Toast the pumpkin seeds with the olive oil until they get golden brown and sizzle a bit, remove from the heat and add the flaky salt.
In a food processor, juice and zest the limes and add all the other ingredients and pulse until emulsified.
Drizzle a couple of tbsp on top of the salad and keep the rest for another time.
Chop the cilantro and add with the toasted pepitas and enjoy!
