Mexican Chopped Salad

Mexican Chopped Salad

This delicious chopped salad has a Mexican flair including roasted corn, black beans, scallions, and avocados – all blended with a flavorful green goddess dressing! It is a great summer salad, especially if you have a big crowd. We did when I made this, so I made the recipe x4. It is very easy to do! I am not a cilantro fan, so I chopped it and left on the side for cilantro lovers to add in.

Recipe Notes

Melissa's Modifications ... #AlteredTastes 

This recipe is packed with protein and can be 100% whole food plant-based by using Veganese (low-fat) in the dressing instead of mayonnaise*. If you do not avoid dairy, then no alterations are necessary.

*Use dressing sparingly as it has high calories (and is very rich, so lightly dress the salad and you'll have plenty of flavor), or use a low-fat / low-cal green goddess dressing.

If you feel you need added protein, then feel free to add grilled organic chicken or grilled tofu.
