Mexican style salad bowl

Ingredients for 1 serving :

  • 1 cup (200 g) red beans
  • 1.5 cups lettuce of your choice
  • 1 tomato if in season or 1/2 cup tomato sauce if out of the season
  • 1 shallot
  • 2 or 3 Tbsp guacamole (check out my express guacamole recipe here:
  • Optional : 1/4 cup (50 g) cheese of your choice (I chose Ossau-Iraty a sheep cheese from Southwestern France)
  • Powdered cumin
  • Lemon juice (a squeeze)
  • Olive oil
  • A handful of corn tortilla chips
  1. Peel and slice the shallot in tiny pieces and make it sweat with a little bit of oil in a frying pan
  2. In the meantime, in a bowl, put the guacamole on one side and add the lettuce next to it.
  3. Add the fresh tomato (or tomato sauce) and the red beans in the frying pan. Add a pinch of cumin. Cook for 5 minutes and transfer the whole thing into the salad bowl, next to the lettuce (not on top of it, otherwise it will cook it)
  4. If you want to add cheese, cut it into small pieces and add them on top of the lettuce. Add a generous squeeze of lemon juice and a little bit of olive oil to your salad, put some tortilla chips on the side of the salad bowl and voila!

Bon appétit!
