In the summer, I love simple, filling salads and this recipe does not disappoint.  I even ate it the second go around for lunch today and it was even better!

  • 4 T Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 3 t Honey
  • A few dashes of hot sauce (to your liking)
  • 1/2 C Cilantro Leaves
  • Juice from one large lime or two small ones (I ended up adding more because I LOVE LIME)
  • Salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste.

Salad:

  • 4 C Cabbage Slaw (you can buy this in the bagged lettuce section) or 1 head of green cabbage, finely chopped
  • 1 Bell pepper any color
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Cooked ear of corn, kernals sliced off the cob
  • 1 Can black beans

Instructions:

Make dressing by combining all ingredients in blender.  I actually made mine a few hours before dinner to let the flavors combine more.

Combine your salad ingredients in a large bowl, toss with dressing and serve.

  1. Looks very interesting. Crunchy and refreshing!!! I wonder how it would work with a broccoli slaw (the prepackaged kind)
