So, it’s like the hottest day ever in New York.
We’re talking unbearably hot, humid and sticky.
The heat rises up from the pavement when you walk home from work and if you stand in one spot too long waiting for the light to change, your sandals can melt to the asphalt. No joke.
The last thing I want to do is walk into my sweltering apartment and turn on the stove.
But I’m hungry and want something substantial.
Enter: Mexican Salad.
Cold lettuce, canned beans, rinsed and drained, canned corn, taco spice and creamy guacamole. Satisfying and refreshing dinner.
Start with shredded lettuce. I used iceberg because i wanted something really cold and crunchy.
In a bowl mix pinto beans, black beans and corn and add a tablespoon or so of taco seasoning.
Pile the bean mix and some guacamole on top of the lettuce. and voila! Dinner. No oven required.
