Mexican Chopped Salad with Greek Yogurt Cilantro Lime Ranch

Category: Dinner Party, Lunch/Snacks, Salads

 Ingredients List

  • 1 head romain lettuce, chopped
  • 2 ears corn (raw), kernels cut from cob
  • 4 mini (or 1 large) orange peppers, diced
  • 4 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and diced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, chopped
  • 2 avocados (ripe but still slightly firm), diced
  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • Tortilla strips, optional (recipe here
  • Dressing
  • 1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt (I used whole)
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise (I used full fat)
  • 6 Tbsp milk (more or less as desired)
  • 1/2 cup packed cilantro, very finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 2 - 3 pinches cayenne pepper
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice


1. Toss all salad ingredients together in a bowl (I actually layered the lettuce on bottom first then other ingredients tossed together after that, either way it doesn't matter). Plate salad, then top with tortilla strips and Cilantro Lime Ranch.
2. For the Greek Yogurt Cilantro Lime Ranch:
3. Add all dressing ingredients to a mixing bowl then whisk until combined, add more milk/lime juice if desired for a thinner consistency. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
4. Recipe Source: salad portion adapted slightly from The Cafe Sucre Farine, dressing - Cooking Classy
