Mexican Tortilla Salad

The tortillas in this salad may just become your favourite cracker. The Cajun seasoning gives a salty, spicy flavour that can be served without the salad but with dip for when you want a savoury snack.

I used a simple dressing for this salad, just a squeezing of lemon juice and some black paper. That added to the Cajun seasoning gives more than enough flavour to turn this tomato, corn, cucumber and lettuce combo into a Mexican delight, especially with the avocado heaped on top.

This is a basic Mexican salad, just perfect for me as a basic Spanish language learner. I now understand why ‘tortilla’ is pronounced as ‘tor-TEE-ya’.

Gracias!
