As promised, here’s a super yummy, fresh, healthy, and fun Tostada with Mexican Corn Salad from Easter! I love Mexican Food, and the addition of the Corn Salad to a tostada (which can sometimes be a little heavy), is just delicious!
I really like the bright light salad. It was great on my tacos. I loved dipping chips into it and eating it like a dip. It could be a salsa or a salad. I thought it would be a great tostada, and it really was! I love the addition of the shredded iceberg lettuce in this one. It’s crunchy texture really adds a fun aspect to the tostada. But, feel free to use any kind of lettuce you like; darker leafy greens will add more nutrition, and we usually use spinach or romaine. And, yes, spinach would be awesome in this salad as well.
If you’d like to make your own salsa, I have a bunch of recipes. You might like to try an Enchilada Salsa or a Traditional Salsa using canned tomatoes. My favorite salsa is one I make with roasted tomatoes. Or, maybe you’re looking for a Salsa Verde to make it a little more exotic! Which ever you use, or even if you use a jarred salsa, it’s all yummy!
* See the photo above with the drizzled on sour cream? I’ll be posting a tip on how to get your sour cream to look like that. It’s really easy, and I served the sour cream this way at Easter dinner. It’s a great way to keep the sauce mess to a minimum. Click here to take a look at the Super Simple Way to Serve Sour Cream!
As with my Awesome Wrap, this tostada is a guide. Keep it vegan by leaving out the cheese and sour cream. With the black beans, refried beans, and corn in the tostada, there’s no need to add additional protein, but if you want, you could add shredded chicken or beef for a meaty tostada.
Tostada with Mexican Corn Salad
Serves 1, but it’s easily made into as many as you want!

Toast the tortilla in a dry skillet until golden brown, flip to second side and repeat. Once tortilla is toasted, place it on your plate and add a smear of refried beans. Top with a big handful of shredded lettuce and a large scoop of Mexican Corn Salad. Top with toppings of choice. And, enjoy your yummy tostada!
