Southwestern Style Tossed Salad

Here’s a twist on a regular dinner salad.  I add beans, corn, and avocado to give this salad a southwestern flair.  Try it with my spicy Chipotle Ranch Dressing recipe.

Here’s What You Will Need:

1 Head Iceberg Lettuce, chopped

1/2 C. Fresh or Frozen Corn, thawed

1/2 C. Dark Red Kidney Beans, drained

1 Large Ripe Tomato, diced

1 Small Can Sliced Black Olives, drained (2.25 ounces)

1/2 Avocado, Diced

Juice of 1/2 of 1 Lime

Squeeze the lime juice over the avocado, to coat.

In a salad bowl mix together all of the ingredients except the avocado.  Top with the diced avocado and serve immediately.  For a spicy dressing, try the Chipotle Ranch recipe.
