When I've made this salad in the past I've thrown a hard-boiled egg in, or leftover cooked, diced chicken breast to pump up the protein. You could just as easily add diced turkey or chicken deli meat to this too or even go meatless, as I did most recently using black beans and avocado.
I like spicing this up by topping with salsa, and finishing with ranch dressing and broken tortilla chips for a little crunch. If I had big flour tortillas on hand, this would have gotten tossed together, wrapped in a tortilla and grilled. But, just as good served in a bowl!
Ingredients, for one salad:
- 1/4 head of iceberg lettuce, chopped
- 1/4 cup low sodium black beans, rinsed
- 1/4 cup shredded cheese
- 1/4 cup frozen corn, defrosted at room temp
- 1/2 roma tomato, diced
- 1/2 avocado sliced
Toss it all together and eat it. You're done!
