Ingredients
  

FOR THE SALAD:

  • 2 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 cup sweet corn cooked
  • 1 cup black beans cooked
  • 10 cherry or plum tomatoes cut into halves
  • ½ cup cucumber diced
  • ½ cup pineapple chunks
  • ½ cup spring onion chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh coriander chopped

FOR THE AVOCADO DRESSING:

  • ½ cup avocado pulp
  • ½ cup plain yogurt thick
  • 1 clove garlic peeled and minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh coriander leaves chopped
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 jalapeño chopped
  • ½ tsp pepper powder

Instructions
 

PREPARATION OF SALAD:

  • Wash the greens thoroughly and pat them dry on a kitsch towel.
  • Tear them up into smaller bite size.
  • Mix all the salad ingredients in a bowl.

PREPARATION OF AVOCADO DRESSING:

  • Add avocado pulp, yogurt, chili, garlic, coriander into a food processor.
  • Process till you get a smooth creamy mixture.
  • Add salt, pepper and lime juice.
  • Pulse for 2-3 seconds.
  • Remove the dressing into a bowl.

SERVING:

  • I usually prefer to serve the salad with the dressing on the side. That way people can add dressing according to their preference.

Notes

  • You can add other vegetables like bell pepper, chopped onion, olives, carrots etc.
  • Use green chili instead of jalapeño
  • Use leftover dressing as a dip.
  • For vegan version of dressing omit dairy yogurt and use vegan yogurt. Or simply add some water. You will still get a creamy dressing.
