Recipe – Mexican Tortilla Salad

The best recipes are created by accident! A couple of weeks ago I decided I liked olives. I’m sure you can appreciate how shocking it was for a lifelong olive hater to crave these salty little goodies. I splashed out on a big tub of basil and garlic olives and roasted vegetables and then had to figure out how to use it. A quick search through the kitchen gave me the ingredients for this colourful tortilla salad.



½ red pepper

½ green pepper

½ yellow pepper

2 spring onions


Half an avocado

A few handfuls of tortilla chips



1) Chop the spinach roughly and rinse
2) Dice the peppers and avocado
3) Chop the olives, tomato and spring onions
4) Mix ingredients together and add a few handfuls of crushed tortilla chips

It’s a very simple recipe and you can add whatever ingredients you would like! I served mine topped with some jalapeno hummus to add a spicy kick.

Are you an olive fan? What do you like to do with them?
