Food is an essential part of Mexican culture-it’s the glue that binds everything together. Taking inspiration from the Mexican kitchen is so easy!!

This Mexican tortilla salad is a favorite around here! It is healthy and crunchy and loved by everyone! Sometimes I say “salad” and the kids run a mile, not with this one! It’s a family dinner time winner!!

Easy & Quick. Under 30 minutes and dinner is on the table!


  • Let the rice cool a little before adding the salad ingredients otherwise they may get soggy.
  • I selected salted tortilla chips for a bit of extra salty flavor.
  • This is the time to get out the eccentric decorative serving dish… it adds to the taste I promise!
  • Further option: to prepare in individual bowls if easier!

Mexican Tortilla Salad Ingredients:

  • juice of 1 lime

Mexican Tortilla Salad Instructions:

  • Cook your rice according to package instructions. We used wild rice for an extra healthy crunch!
  • Mix all salad ingredients together – minus the rice – in a large bowl.
  • Add lime juice and season.
  • Once the rice has cooled place it into the serving dish.
  • Add salad ingredients on top of the rice.
  • Finish with chopped avocado and tortilla chips – I stood them up in-between the salad for effect. You could just as well sprinkle them over the top.
  • Optional garnish with flat-leaf parsley.
