Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    Dressing:
    1/4 cup olive oil (I reduced from 1/3 c)
    1/3cup red wine vinegar
    2 Tbsp water
    1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    1/4cup chopped fresh parsley
    2 cloves garlic, chopped (I like more)
    1 1/2 tsp cumin
    1 1/2 tsp chili powder
    1/2 tsp black pepper
    1/2 tsp salt (I reduced from 1 1/4 tsp)


    Salad Ingredients:
    10 oz lean ground turkey (7% fat) (this is half of a 20 oz pkg ground turkey-I use the rest for taco meat)
    1 can black beans (15 oz) rinse & drain
    1 can corn (15 oz) drain
    2 cups diced fresh tomatoes
    1 cup shredded reduced fat monterey jack cheese (NOTE optional & not in nutrition information)

Directions

Brown and drain ground turkey.
Chop cilantro, parsley, tomato, red onion & garlic.
Rinse and drain beans (reduces sodium)
Drain corn.
Combine all dressing ingredients ( olive oil through salt) and mix well.
Combine salad ingredients in large bowl except the (optional) cheese. Stir in dressing. You can serve it right away, but I prefer to chill it until ready to serve, several hours or overnight. It has more distinct flavors at first and the flavor improves and blends with time.
Stir in cheese just before serving, if desired.
Enjoy this plain, serve it on a bed of lettuce, with chips or in a tortilla. It has a strong fresh cilantro flavor. I am always asked for this recipe any time I bring it somewhere. The bell pepper is a new addition. This salad packs a whopping 88% of your RDA of vitamin C! Very good!
This can also be made without the ground turkey if you want a more vegetarian dish.

Makes 8 - 1 cup servings
