Black Bean, Corn & Nopalito Salad

My favorite kind of salad by far is a hearty Tex-Mex salad. There are so many things that go well in this type of salad I sometimes don’t know when to stop adding ingredients. This salad has some of my favorites but there really are so many other possibilities.

Today’s ingredients:

  • cherry peppers
  • corn
  • tomatoes
  • jalapeños
  • black beans
  • red onion
  • cilantro
  • red cabbage
  • nopales (cactus)
  • avocado
  • Fritos® corn chips
  • homemade fermented hot sauce

I resisted the temptation to add cubed cheese. Other things that would have gone well:

  • radish
  • cucumber
  • jicama
  • olives
  • capers
  • carrots
  • marinated artichokes
  • garbanzos
  • red kidney beans
