Allow me to introduce you to this delightfully nutritious and ridiculously delicious Southwestern Salad. This salad is one of my go-to salads because it's quick, packed with hearty greens and completely gorgeous. As a bonus this southwestern salad is low in saturated fat and packed with antioxidants. It goes great as a side dish for grilled meat, fish or chicken. I typically pair it with a light caesar or balsamic dressing, but this salad is so versatile that you can basically match it with any dressing.
Large head of romaine
1 package of spring mix
(1)15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 roma tomato
2 cups corn
1 onion (I prefer purple)
Optional: avocado, feta cheese, cilantro, tortilla strips
Cook beans and corn, allow to cool. In a large bowl, combine beans, corn, tomato, onion, cilantro, salt and pepper. Sprinkle mixture on top of the romaine and spring lettuce. Serve with a smile. Enjoy!
