Mexican Salad – Gotham Gal

The farmers market in Los Angeles is starting to flow with incredible produce. There are also a few stalls that sell their own products from yogurt to salsa to mozzarella. As always, I find it hard to restrain myself!

We had friends over for dinner and concocted a salad based on what I picked up at the Mar Vista Farmers market. It was a score, and had leftovers for lunch the next day. That is when I finally took a picture.

  • Shaved Brussel Sprouts
  • Fresh peas (blanched)
  • Hearts of Palm sliced
  • White Beans (already cooked and drained – these were seasoned a bit from the farmer
  • Pickled onions chopped (just a handful)
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Crumbled tortilla chips

Put all of this together and mix with a spicy lime chili vinagrette

  • 3 tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt for taste

Mix thoroughly.

I separated everything out and tossed right before dinner. Served with pan fried shrimp, sliced avocados, corn tortilla quesodillos with Cojita cheese and roasted cabbage leaves. Delish!! Just need a few shots of tequila for an added bonus.
