  • 2 bell peppers I use organic because peppers are a highly sprayed conventional crop, chopped – I used my beloved Bosch food processor for this so it's a fast job.
  • 1/2 a bunch cilantro – ditto on the food processor.
  • 2 ears sweet corn rub with olive oil, grill on medium heat, keep turning 'til sides are all browned, then cut it off the cob
  • Queso Fresco cheese crumbled (found by the deli cheese at the store — I think that name just means “fresh cheese”), or you could use FETA cheese — yum!
  • Here are more ideas to add in especially if they are in season where you are: tomatoes, avocados, cucumbers, celery, chop them up small.


  • Mix the dressing ingredients then toss in the vegetables and cheese.
  • I doubled this and it was still not enough, FYI.
  • You could eat it with chips or crackers but we liked it just by itself. Did I mention that all four of the kids EACH had three helpings? No wonder we ran out
