    • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
    • 2 cups cherry or grape tomatoes, halved (if desired)
    • 2 cups fresh cilantro leaves, loosely packed

    • 1 can whole kernel corn, drained

Method

To Make The Salad:

Toss all salad ingredients together until combined, or serve “rainbow-style” lined up on top of the lettuce. Drizzle and toss with honey lime vinaigrette and serve.

To Make The Dressing:

Add cilantro, orange juice, lime juice, honey, cumin, salt and pepper to a food processor or blender and pulse until combined. Gradually stream in the olive oil while pulsing until combined.
