This has got to be the healthiest dinner I’ve ever eaten no doubt. I mean this is a salad without cheese that is actually amazingly delicious! It just a big bowl of incredibly fresh ingredients all tossed together and covered with a creamy Greek Yogurt Cilantro Lime Dressing and optional baked tortilla chips. So, what’s not to love? Not to mention it’s so easy to make, its mostly just a bunch of chopping really. Which is why today I’ve reached out to WÜSTHOF to partner with them to offer you the chance to win a set of your own top of the line cutlery!! With a salad like this your cutlery can make such a big difference.
This knives are truly legit, not to mention they make prep so much more efficient because you wouldn’t believe how they cut through ingredients with such ease and precision. When it comes to cutlery WÜSTHOF is what you want to own, they have set such a high quality standard. They sent me this same set I’m giving away to review and I couldn’t be more impressed! Working in the kitchen just got a whole lot easier! I love that WÜSTHOF products are guaranteed to be free of defects in materials and craftsmanship and they offer free knife sharpening for $3 per knife. Does it get any better? I mean yes you can go buy another set of knives that is half the price, but we all know it’s likely you are going to be replacing those knives in a number of years. Others can just be so poorly made.

Mexican Chopped Salad with Greek Yogurt Cilantro Lime Ranch
A healthy, colorful, perfectly delicious chopped salad that's packed with vegetables and fresh Mexican flavors!
- 1 head romain lettuce , chopped
- 2 ears corn (raw), kernels cut from cob
- 4 mini (or 1 large) orange peppers, diced
- 4 roma tomatoes , diced
- 1 cucumber , peeled and diced
- 1/2 medium red onion , chopped
- 2 avocados (ripe but still slightly firm), diced
- 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
- Tortilla strips , optional (recipe here
- 1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt (I used whole)
- 2 Tbsp mayonnaise (I used full fat)
- 6 Tbsp milk (more or less as desired)
- 1/2 cup packed cilantro , very finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic , minced
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp cumin
- 2 - 3 pinches cayenne pepper
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper , to taste
- 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
Toss all salad ingredients together in a bowl (I actually layered the lettuce on bottom first then other ingredients tossed together after that, either way it doesn't matter). Plate salad, then top with tortilla strips and Cilantro Lime Ranch.
For the Greek Yogurt Cilantro Lime Ranch:
Add all dressing ingredients to a mixing bowl then whisk until combined, add more milk/lime juice if desired for a thinner consistency. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator.
