Taco Salad

4 leaves of green leaf lettuce
1/2 cup frozen corn (thawed)
5 black olives, sliced
1/4 cup of fresh slice tomato
a few pinches of fresh cilantro
1/2 of a green onion3 slices of jalepeno

Juice of one small lime
1 1/2 tbs of olive oil
1 tsp white wine vinegar
pinch of ground cumin
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp fresh black pepper
Dash of hot sauce

This is a really easy and delicious salad that is perfect with a heavier, possibly Mexican inspired dish.

Chop all salad ingredients to desired size.  Combine in bowl and top with fresh cilantro.  The jalepeno is optional, but I think it adds a nice kick.  Also, to give the salad a bit more flavor, I like to cook the frozen corn in salt, pepper, hot sauce, and cumin.  It gets the flavors into the dish in a subtle and nice way.

For the dressing:  Juice the lime and whisk in the olive oil a little at a time.  Then add the other ingredients and stir.  Pour over salad right before serving.
