Fiesta Salad

by sunshine on August 17, 2009

I have had this dish many times at different pot luck gatherings and have made it a few times myself.  It tastes great, people always love it, and it’s really easy to make.  I learned of this great dish from a dear friend of mine from high school (love ya, Danah!).  The first time I had it was at a pot luck at her church.  Her mother made it and was nice enough to give me the recipe many years ago.  It has been a favorite of mine since.

A nice, light salad for summertime.  Enjoy!

1 bag of salad greens
2 tomatoes, diced
1 can of ranch style beans, rinsed (you can also use black beans)
1-2 bags of Fritos
1 bag of Shredded Cheddar cheese
8 oz. Bottle of Catalina dressing


Mix all ingredients together in a salad bowl and voila….you’re done!

(One tip…put fritos and dressing on right before serving to keep chips from getting soggy)
