Fresh Mexican Salad

Summer is COMING!!! My favorite time of year for cooking! 
Here is something yummy to get us started!

This one is a winner! I don't know a single person who didn't care for it. Fresh, Simple, and SOOOOO Good! I could eat this ALL DAY!

16-20 oz. Baby Spinach (I just used a bag)
1/2 Red Onion, Diced small
1 Red Pepper, Diced Small
1/2 Container of Cherry Tomatoes, Sliced
1 large Corn on the Cob, Raw and corn sliced right off! (this is the best EVER!! I NEVER cook corn!)
1 Avocado, Diced
1 Can Black Beans, Rinsed
Large Handful of crushed Tortilla Chips

Mix all together and Add Salt and Pepper. Mix Dressing and pour over salad and mix to distribute dressing.

1/4 C Olive Oil
Juice and ZEST of 1 Lime
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
1 LARGE clove garlic, diced small
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp White wine Vinegar
1/2 Bunch of Cilantro, diced small
1/2 -1 Tbl Honey or Agave (to taste)

(if you want a fat free dressing, skip the oil, and juice the WHOLE lemon, add more honey if needed. Its a little tart, but tastes good once drizzled all over!)
