This hearty and colorful main-course salad is easy to throw together when I get home from work, because it uses canned black beans and Mexicorn and packaged chicken breast strips. I sometimes add a can of ripe olives and fresh cherry tomatoes from our garden.

MY REVIEW

This was so easy and my husband loved it! I made it without the carrots, because I'm not a huge fan of them. The dressing is awesome.

MY REVIEW

This definitely came together quick. The equal portions of the salsa, ranch and BBQ sauce was delicious. I will probably use that as a dip. Next time I would omit the baby carrots though, it was to much of a crunch for the delicate spinach entree.
