Mexican Chopped Salad

Mexican Chopped Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

June 21, 2024

This Mexican Chopped Salad with Honey Lime Dressing works surprisingly well for meal prep since many of the ingredients can last a few days in the fridge. If you are making this in advance, start with a glass jar or container. Layer the black beans and corn on the bottom. Then add the red onion and jicama. Top with the romaine lettuce, cilantro, and queso fresco. Pack the mango, cherry tomatoes, and dressing separately since they will wilt the other ingredients. Cut the avocado fresh that day and toss everything together. 

If you are packing in the morning for lunch that day, you can pack the mango and tomatoes with the black beans and corn. You can even add the dressing at the bottom of the container since it will only need to stay fresh for a few hours. Then just add the avocado right before serving.
