Southwestern Chopped Salad with Cilantro Dressing

So it’s been awhile.  And not because I haven’t been cooking.  Because, I love cooking.  I really, really do.  I found this recipe on pinterest and of course loving cilantro, black beans, and many of the other ingredients…I jumped all over it! My camera was dead so I stole their photo, but I promise it was delish and totally worthy of adding to our recipe list. I added grilled chicken to make it a bit more filling.  Enjoy!

Salad Ingredients

  • Large head of romaine
  • 15 oz. can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large orange bell pepper
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 2 cups corn (I used frozen, thawed)
  • 5 green onions
  • 2 Grilled Chicken Breasts, sliced

Salad Directions
Finely chop romaine, bell pepper, tomatoes, and green onions.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine.
Toss with desired dressing.

Dressing Ingredients

  • 1 cup loosely packed cilantro, stems removed and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice (about 1 small lime)
  • 1-2 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

Dressing Directions
Puree all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.
Taste and adjust seasonings if necessary.

Our Suggested Wine Pairing: a crisp and lively Sauvignon Blanc
