A salad recipe from the devil’s minion.

I’m not saying I’ve met the devil, I’m just saying I have a recipe from someone who obviously hangs out with him a lot.   It’s an amazing recipe.  Stellar.  Heavenly.  I’ve had it saved for a long time and I can’t make myself use it because this lady is so mean.   Devil’s minion type mean.  I’m pretty sure she will end up being one of those senior citizens that bites everyone in the nursing home.   Every time I get the urge to make this recipe I pause because I fear that making the recipe would somehow channel her meanness into the food.

It’s a shame really, as the recipe is both yummy and healthy.  I’m going to post it under the belief that I’m laundering the badness out like mobsters launder their bad money.

Cilantro Lime Dressing

  • 1 cup loosely packed cilantro, stems removed
  • 1/2 Cup plain Greek Yogurt
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • Juice 1 Lime
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple vinegar

Salad

  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Grill corn, strip it off the cob
  • Grill Chicken
  • Black beans
  • Tomato
  • Avocado
  • feta
  • 1/4 cup tortilla strips for garnish

Go forth and make the recipe with wild abandon.  Just stop eating if you get the urge to kick small dogs, push senior citizens into traffic or bake children in the oven.
