Mexican Kale Salad with Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette

Loaded with black beans, bell peppers and corn, this Mexican kale salad is anything but boring.

This Mexican Kale is the perfect lunch of summer dinner. It’s loaded with fresh veggies and comes together in minutes!

I made this chopped kale salad without meat however you could always serve this with chicken, steak or fish.

I like to grill my corn or saute it before putting it on the salad. It adds so much more flavor.

For the dressing I use fresh squeezed lime juice, honey olive oil, cilantro and garlic. It’s light and refreshing and the perfect compliment to this salad!
