Summer Salad

This recipe is from
V&V Supremo®
Servings: 4


This is an example of a salad one may find in the restaurants of Mexico City; it celebrates traditional Mexican flavors with fresh ingredients.



For the salad:

16 cherry tomatoes, washed, cut in half


1 large avocado, diced medium


5 oz. young salad greens


1 large sweet onion (such as Vidalia) peeled, sliced in thin rings


8.8 oz. pkg. V&V SUPREMO® DEL CARIBE® Cheese diced


½ cup of raw pumpkinseeds (without shells)



For the dressing:

½ cup  fresh lime juice


1 cup  extra virgin olive oil


1/2 cup  cilantro, chopped



1 fresh serrano or jalapeno chile


salt to taste




  1. Place a dry skillet or a griddle over medium heat. Place the pumpkinseeds on skillet until they start to pop and turn brown (about 5 minutes). Let them cool down.
  2. Place all dressing ingredients in a blender and blend well.
  3. Place tomatoes and avocado in a bowl with about 2 tablespoons of the dressing. Mix well.
  4. Toss greens in a large bowl with enough dressing to lightly coat them. Mix well.



SERVING: divide salad into 4 salad plates. Place ¼ of the tomato- avocado mixture in the center of each plate. Sprinkle cheese, pumpkin seeds, and onion rings on top.
