5-Minute Southwest Layered Salad

This past week, I made this salad for dinner and it was a huge hit (even with those that aren't typical enjoyers of salad). Its quick, its easy, and its delicious. Try it.

5-Minute Southwest Layered Salad


Prep: 5 minutes
Total: 5 minutes

6 c. torn romaine lettuce
1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed, drained
1 c. frozen corn, thawed
3/4 c. salsa
1/2 c. shredded cheddar jack cheese
1/4 c. ranch dressing
1 c. tortilla chips, broken

Arrange lettuce  in bottom of serving bowl.
Layer beans, corn, salsa, and cheese evenly over top.
Drizzle with dressing; sprinkle with chips.

Makes 4 servings, 1 1/2 c. each

I substituted iceberg lettuce, canned corn, and a Mexican cheese mix and it was still really good. Feel free to experiment. Its pretty much impossible to screw up.
