I was at Baja Fresh recently with some friends and I remarked how much I love the Baja Ensalada they serve. However, for the $7 they charge for one salad, I am pretty sure I can make it at home for two people. I gave it shot, and even though I didn’t have the exact ingredients, it had the crunch and flavor I was craving.
The salad has thinly sliced organic red leaf lettuce, garbanzo beans, avocado and tomato slices, grilled shrimp, red onion, corn, and chopped cilantro. Instead of tortilla strips, I crunched some blue corn chips on top (after tossing the salad in a nice light dressing). I squeezed fresh lime juice over before serving. Tangy, crunchy, healthy, and satisfying. And it made 4 BIG bowlfuls!
