Lick the Bowl Clean Southwest Salad Dressing

Monday’s upon us again and it’s time to get back to the beloved daily grindstone.  As for myself, depending on the time of day you’re reading this I’m either having a yummy mid morning breakfast  with another close blogger friend of mine; Sommer from A Spicy Perspective, I’m on the road heading back to Charlotte and enjoying a quiet drive with me, myself, and I, or I’m already in Charlotte dealing with my own personal “return to the real world” grindstone of laundry and a house that’s been inhabited by my husband and three wild animals boys alone in the house all weekend.  God bless him.

Anyway you slice it, it’s been a great weekend away with my blogging girlfriends, and I’m ready to tackle another week of chaos and fun.  So what do you say?  How about a light and tasty salad to kick off this final week of September?  And, yes, you will most definitely lick the bowl clean and come back for seconds on this one.  It’s just that good.  I made it for our supper club a few weeks back and ended up eating not one, not two, but three bowls of it the next day for lunch (I may be revealing just a bit too much about my eating habits by telling you that).  To top it off, it’s super easy make, and I really do mean that.

Before we head to the kitchen, I just want to remind my local Charlotte readers one more time that Disney on Ice featuring Toy Story 3 is quickly approaching!  It will be taking place over at The Time Warner Arena from October 6th through the 10th.  Head HERE to my previous post for more information on available discounts and a link to ticket purchases.  I hope to see you all there!

Now, let’s head to the kitchen and whip up a lick the bowl clean salad!

Ingredients Needed:

1 Cup of Sour Cream
1/2 Jalapeno, Chopped
2 Tbsp Salsa
1/2 Lime, Juiced
1 Clove of Garlic
1 Tbsp of Fresh Cilantro
1/4 tsp of Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Chili Powder
2 Tbsp of Vegetable Stock
1 Tbsp of Mayo
Salt and Pepper to Taste

Alright, are you ready for this?  Mix it all together, throw it in the fridge for an hour or more to meld the flavors and you’re done!  If that’s not easy, then I don’t know what is.  And believe me, the taste will make people think you slaved away in your kitchen for hours.

Of course, I can’t leave you without telling you how I put together my salad.  For a Mommie Cooks Southwest salad, you’ll need to grab your….

  • Lettuce mix
  • Some fresh cooked corn, shucked off the cob
  • Fresh diced tomatoes
  • A can of rinsed black beans
  • Chopped green onion
  • Chopped up Avocado
  • A couple handfuls of roughly crushed tortilla chips and, of course
  • A big ol’ handful of shredded cheese

Throw it all in your salad bowl, grab your dressing and add a few large spoonfuls on top.

Now, my friends, prepare to moan and groan your way through the best darn southwest salad this side of the Mississippi.

    Oh that sounds good! We’ve been getting out of salad mode with the cooler weather coming on (craving those carbs!) but this is definitely a “must-try.”

    Thanks for sharing! :)

    That does sound delicious! We may be having this for dinner tonight, as I’m low on groceries, but have every item on the ingredient list (minus the corn!)

    It was fun to meet up this morning! Lots to think about…

    Ok, for some reason Blogger stopped telling me about our new posts a few weeks ago. The other day I was like, “What happened to Julie?!!?” and I noticed I had to re-copy your site into my Blogger reader! It’s working now :)

    I see you’re getting better about including all the ingredients in your photos :)

    Mmm– looks so good. I would seriously make this dressing right now if I had all the ingredients on hand (lacking the lime and cilantro, and I’ve been out all day in the rain and already went shopping). I am making a similar salad tonight! :( Maybe I’ll make the dressing tomorrow to go with the leftovers! So happy I saw this recipe — looks delicious.

    Aren’t home made salad dressings the best? I haven’t bought one in years.

    Julie…it’s always nice to read when Foodies get together and share this great common world of ours. Sommer is probably a real joy to keep company with.

    The salad dressing looks sumptuously decadent and will make anyone want salad ;o)

    Ciao for now,

    This looks and sounds incredible. My mom used to make a southwestern style dressing that looked very similar to this and tasted amazing but I don’t have the recipe. I will try this for sure!

    Hey,

    I would love to make this dressing, but there are two things I’m missing. Any idea what I can replace Salsa and Onion Powder with?

    Thanks a ton :)

    Very good! Just made this, but substituted Greek yogurt for the sour cream. Also, didn’t have vegetable stock, so I left it out. This will be a new regular!
