Oh, this Mexican kale salad is sooo good!

Hearty and crunchy salad, where veggies are “swimming” in a cilantro avocado dressing. Kale, black beans, corn and tomatoes combined with a bit of jalapenos for a heat kick, red onion, cilantro and tossed in a tangy, creamy with a cumin flavour punch dressing. Serve alongside grilled chicken and your dinner is done!

Hearty salads like mango black bean salad, Mexican bean salad recipe and chickpea avocado salad are my best summer friends.
