Fresh Greens, Avocado With a Lime Vinaigrette

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by SarasotaCook

Simple bagged greens or fresh market lettuce makes this a breeze, black beans, lime and spicy peppers makes a great simple salad with creamy avacado and a tangy vinaigrette.

Really enjoyed this recipe. I wimped out and only added 1/4 jalapeno. Next time I will definitely add the full jalapeno as it adds a nice tangy kick. It kind of reminds me of McDonald's Southwest Salad Dressing. Tonight I served it topped with some grilled shrimp which I marinated in a bit of the dressing. Very yummy. Thanks for the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Salad -- in a large bowl, mix up the greens. Add the onion, avacado, cilantro, beans, salt and pepper and cherry tomatoes.
  2. Dressing -- mix all the dressing ingredients in a measuring cup and stir well.
  3. Finish -- Just toss the salad dressing over the salad and that simple. A great unique flavor. Don't be afraid to make this a whole dinner. Add some rotisserie chicken, or grilled shrimp, anything. Just have fun with it.
  4. You can even top this with some good Mexican shredded cheese. It is a great salad. Even chopped up fresh fried tortillas or even just corn chips for a little crunch.
