I threw this salad together today because it was hot today and thought I’d share it with you!
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes (I used golden cherry tomatoes)
- 1 cup sliced and quartered cucumbers
- 2 TB crumbled cotija cheese
- 2 TB balsamic vinegar
- 2 TB fresh cilantro
Just combine all ingredients and enjoy!

For some reason, this item gets more requests than any other potluck item I bring. The salad dressing is SO simple. I just use 50% Ranch dressing with 50% of the Guaca Salsa (a tomatillo based salsa) seen above. It has been tested out by tons of partygoers with the following ingredients that have been narrowed down to work the best with the dressing:
- Romaine lettuce
- Baby Spinach
- chopped cilantro
- chopped green onions
- chopped bell pepper
- fresh corn
- shredded chicken
- frozen, thawed peas
- thick, fresh tortilla chips, crushed (from a restaurant or bakery) or make them yourself
Just combine all the ingredients with the salad dressing and enjoy!
