    Super easy, colorful dinner salad loaded with flavor.


    • 1 Romaine heart
    • 1 cup of black beans drained and rinsed
    • 3/4 cup of unsweetened canned corn, drained and rinsed
    • 1/3 cilantro
    • 1 small jalapeno
    • 1 small tomato (any variety will work)
    • 1/3 red onion
    • 1/3 cup cheddar cheese
    • 1/2 lime
    • 1/4 cup of light cesar dressing


    1. Rinse all produce before you start.
    2. Cut Jalapeno in half and mince. Lightly toast in a small pan and set aside.
    3. Cut your romaine heart in thirds, lengthwise. Then chop up each row in 1 inch pieces. Toss in a large salad bowl.
    4. Add corn and black beans
    5. Finely chop Cilantro. Add to salad bowl
    6. Slice red onion and add to bowl.
    7. Grate cheese and add 1/3 cup to salad
    8. In a small bowl whisk dressing, lime juice and toasted jalapeno.
    9. Toss dressing in with salad. There should only be enough dressing to very lightly coat the salad. Trust me; there is A LOT of flavor.

      Different cheese would be better. I think.
