All the flavors of a taco in a healthy salad with a refreshing dressing! This is such a quick meal you can put together last minute, and if you want it even faster just buy the dressing!



1 tablespoon olive oil
4 ounces Mexican chorizo, casing removed
5 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1/2 cup Del Monte® Whole Kernel Sweet Gold and White Corn, drained
1/2 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1 roma tomato, diced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and diced
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese, for garnish
1/4 cup tortilla strips, for garnish

For the lime vinaigrette, or dressing of choice:
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
Zest of 1 lime
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
2 teaspoons sugar, or more to taste




  • To make the vinaigrette, whisk together olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lime zest and juice, and sugar in a small bowl; set aside.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chorizo and cook until dry and crisp, about 2 minutes, making sure to crumble the chorizo as it cooks; let cool.
  • To assemble the salad, place romaine lettuce in a large bowl; top with chorizo, corn, black beans, tomato and cilantro. Pour the dressing on top of the salad and gently toss to combine. Stir in avocado.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with cheese and tortilla strips, if desired.
