  • Mixed lettuces
  • Cilantro chopped -- as ever much as you want. Have other fresh herbs? Great, add them!
  • Corn cut off the cob (proportions are purposefully left out of this recipe. This is for your leftovers and no one has the same amount. So, how about we say 1-5 ears?!)
  • Variety of tomatoes diced up.
  • Green beans blanched or raw cut into 2 inch strips
  • BBQ chicken pulled off the bone
  • Red white or green onions cut thinly and added to desired taste
  • Chunky Sea or Celtic salt
  • 1-2 Avocados cut up and placed across the top of salad


  • Toss the herbs and mixed lettuces and place in large shallow bowl.
