Tex-Mex Salad

A delicious salad, light and refreshing for the summer! :)

1 bunch romaine lettuce roughly chopped
1 avocado chopped into bite size chunks
1 tomato chopped into bite size chunks
2 corn ears
1/8 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/8 cup finely chopped spring onions
1 cup fried bite size tortilla strips
1 lemon juice
double the lemon juice quantity of extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon good honey
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 - 3/4 tsp tabasco sauce
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Char the corn ears on the gas until well done. Let it cool slightly and remove the corn off the ear in a bowl.

Put the romaine lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, onions, cilantro all in the same bowl.

For the dressing, mix the lemon juice, honey, extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper and tabasco sauce in another bowl and mix it well until blended.

Pour the dressing into the salad bowl and toss it lightly to coat all salad ingredients with dressing.

Plate it and top it with tortilla chips and cheddar cheese! YUM!! :D
