Fiesta Chopped Salad



It's time to start posting a few refreshing salads for the summer months. Mr. B said he really liked this simple dressing with just enough seasoning and spice.  You could even put a few tortilla chips on the side.  

What I did was make up the lettuce in individual bowls and then divide the ingredients to put them on and then run the dressing down the middle.  You may have dressing left that you can put in a bowl if anybody wants extra.

Ingredients for the salad:
4 romaine hearts - chopped
4 cups chopped roasted or cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
2 avocados - chopped
1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 small can shoe peg corn, rinsed and drained

Assemble lettuce in individual bowls and divide other ingredients to top lettuce.

Dressing ingredients:
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
1/4 to 1/2 cup sour cream, depending how thick you want the dressing
1/8 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup green salsa verde (Target, mild)
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together until smooth and drizzle down the middle of salad.
