Mami’s Dominican Salad

Mami's Dominican Salad

My in-laws are from the Dominican Republic, a beautiful country with delicious food! One of my favorite dishes to make at home is a salad my mother-in-law often makes. We call it Mami's Dominican salad! This salad is full of fresh ingredients like avocado and homemade dressing.

It's simple and easy and compliments any dish you set on the table. Plus, you can reach your goal of filling half of your dinner plate with non-starchy vegetables. Add your favorite plant-based protein for an added protein boost.
