In this house, we love ourselves some good Mexican fare.  Who doesn't really?  I think taco nights are standard in most North American households.  Here's a simple salad that makes a perfect side dish to taquitos, chimichangas, quesadillas and the like.

Recipe by Meal Planning 101
Serves 4

2 1/2 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt

1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup corn
1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
4 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped

In the bottom of a medium bowl, whisk together the dressing ingredients until combined.  Add the rest of the salad components and toss until combined.

This salad has a burst of freshness and is a nice change up from regular lettuce salads.
