  1. Whisk together the ingredients for the Citrus Lime Dressing and set aside. [We like to assemble the dressing in a glass jar with a screw top lid, for easy mixing (just shake the jar) and storage of leftovers.]
  2. Assemble all salad ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Toss with 1/3 to 1/2 of the Citrus Lime Dressing, mound on a plate and serve.

Adapted from the Fig and Queso Anejo Salad with Citrus Lime Dressing, created by Chef Jeff Smedstad in his cookbook named after his restaurant in Sedona, called Elote Café.

Wonderful resource for authentic Mexican dishes. We highly recommend this cookbook (and the restaurant)!
