Think of this bright and citrusy salad as like taco salad light! I like to add a whole bunch of avocado just before serving. Cilantro hater? No worries, just leave it out.



  • 4 tablespoons chili-lime salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion
  • 1/4 cup pepitas
  • 1/4 cup fresh minced cilantro
  • 46 cups mixed lettuce and greens (I usually just pick whatever is on sale that week)


  1. Divide the ingredients evenly between two wide-mouth pint-size Mason jars. Make sure to follow the order listed in order to keep the lettuce crisp.
  2. Stuff in as much lettuce as you can, screw on lid, and stash in fridge for up to a week.


You can add fresh chopped avocado and crumbled cotija cheese right before serving. Yum!
