Rockin' Layer Salad

The Akers

(from the Five a Day Kids Cookbook that we got at a garage sale for 25 cents)

  • 1 cp prepared low fat Ranch salad dressing
  • 1 cp prepared salsa
  • 10 oz pkg romaine lettuce (or any other type, we use our garden lettuce when it’s available)
  • 10 oz pkg shredded carrots (we shred our own, about 1 cp)
  • 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 15 oz can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 cp shredded low fat cheddar cheese
  • 1 cp baked tortilla chips, crushed

1. Combine ranch dressing and salsa; set aside.

2. In large bowl, layer romaine/lettuce, then carrots, black beans, corn, red onion, cheese. Pour dressing/salsa mix on top.

3. Chill 45-60 minutes in refrigerator.

4. When ready to serve, top with crushed tortilla chips.

Serves 8, but we often double the recipe so we can have leftovers.
