Tex Mex Salad with Cumin-Yogurt Dressing

Tex Mex Salad with Cumin-Yogurt Dressing

 I don’t want to bake today, nor cook…. This happens a lot in the summer. I just want something quick, tasty and cool. This salad fills the bill and solves the ‘no burners today’ problem.  The seasonings in this simple yogurt dressing are simple and classic: cumin, lime, garlic and honey.  I love those flavors together, I use them in my Fajita Marinade as well. This dressing can be made vegan if you use vegan yogurt, and agave syrup in place of the honey. I used green leaf lettuce and topped it with tomatoes, zucchini, black beans, and my favorite, corn. I imagine other toppings such as cucumber, avocado, bell pepper, green onion and cilantro would be super tasty as well. Just use whatever is in your refrigerator. Another additional crunchy topper could be corn chips. Go… get creative… NO, STAY and browse my recipes! 😀
