Buen Sabor – Cooking with Ana & Amelia

Submitted by on July 8, 2009 - 7:29 pm

Fiesta Chopped Salad

4 cups chopped Romaine lettuce
1 cup corn kernels (either fresh, frozen that you’ve cooked, or canned you’ve rinsed)
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup chopped jicama (a large root vegetable)
1 cup black beans (drained and rinsed, if using canned)
1/3 cup crumbled Cotija cheese (mild Mexican cheese, similar to Feta)
½ cup fresh Cilantro, roughly chopped
1/3 cup Salsa Verde
Juice of ½ a lime
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1-2 cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts, sliced (optional)

Lay romaine lettuce on a platter in a thin layer. Working across the platter, place
other vegetables, beans, and chicken in piles or strips so that you end up with a
beautiful array of colors over the lettuce. Sprinkle the Cotija cheese over the top.

In a small bowl or pitcher mix together the salsa, lime, and oil. Pour this mixture
over the salad and toss just before serving.

Note: you can easily make this salad vegetarian by replacing the chicken with
avocado or simply omitting the chicken.

    Dear Ana,
    HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY! Now you get to hang out with the cool crowd! : ) As I’ve told you before, I just turned 45 and I’m happier, healthier, fitter and stronger than I was when I turned 40. While nutrition and exercise have a lot to do with that, without a doubt, most of it has to do with the BodyTalk System.
    So onward and upward! I hope you have a great day. I know you’re going to have a fabulous year!
    Hugs and Best Wishes,
    Jen
    PS Today is also my Dad’s 83rd B-day!
