mexican chopped salad with honey lime dressing

Despite the fact I used up all of the cilantro the day before making this salad, it's a wonderful salad and I am sure the cilantro would've only added to it tremendously.  I really enjoyed the salad dressing. Next time I will add some shredded chicken for some protein.

mexican chopped salad with honey lime dressing (
2 1/2 cups chopped romaine lettuce
1 can black beans, rinsed and well drained
3/4 cup chopped seeded tomato
3/4 cup chopped peeled jicama
3/4 cup fresh corn kernels, uncooked
3/4 cup thinly sliced radishes
half a ripe avocado, diced
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
1 teaspoon chopped jalapeno pepper 

Toss all salad ingredients in a large bowl.  In separate bowl, mix dressing ingredients.  Pour dressing over mixture and toss again.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.
