This Mexican salad is one of my favourites because it’s so tasty and has all the right stuff to make it a full meal on its own. It’s also quick and easy to throw together. 


For the lime dressing:

  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp chopped chilli (or a pinch of chilli flakes)

For the salad:

  • ½ cup baby spinach leaves, shredded
  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • ½ small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium zucchini, finely chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, finely chopped
  • ½ tin corn
  • ½ tin red kidney beans
  • ¼ cup coriander, finely chopped


  1. Combine lime juice, garlic, honey, coriander and chilli. Stir to combine. In a slow, steady stream, add the oil, stirring continuously with a fork or small whisk.
  2. Assemble all ingredients apart from coriander in a large bowl and toss well with the dressing.
  3. Top with coriander and serve.
