Great summer salad and the perfect side for all barbecues and grills over the season. Colorful, fresh, and delicious. This Mexican Chopped Salad is super easy to make and a healthy side for any main meal.
This Mexican Chopped Salad is one of my favorite salads to create. It's super easy and ultimately delicious. I love how you can create a perfect-looking salad by assembling seasonal produce with a few pantry staples.
What Ingredients are used in the Salad?
Cherry Tomato/Grape Tomato/Chopped Tomato- I have used halved cherry tomatoes. However, you can use any other tomato. Cherry and grape tomatoes look pretty in this salad.
Avocado- Chopped ripe avocado gives a creamy touch to the salad. Do not use over-ripe ones.
Mango- Sweet, firm mangoes are perfect for this type of salad. They give the perfect hint of tanginess combined with sweetness, yet they are not overwhelming.
Sweet Corn- Boiled canned sweet corn is used in this salad; however, if you want fresh ones, you can certainly do that.
Black Beans- Canned black beans are perfect for this salad.
Colored Bell Peppers- Use any colored bell pepper for this recipe.
Fresh chopped cilantro and fresh chilies are the other ingredients.
What Type of Dressing is used in Mexican Chopped Salad?
I have used lime juice, olive oil, maple syrup, and red pepper flakes dressing. It's sweet, tangy, and perfectly delicious. It's not heavy and doesn't take many ingredients to prepare. Easy recipe for a light, fresh summer salad.

You can serve any rice like my Instant Pot Spanish Rice or Saffron Rice with this salad. Air Fryer Zucchini Fritter will be the perfect fit beside Air Fryer Potato & Sweet Corn Fritters. These are all really tasty.
