Bean Tossed Salad Recipe

I assemble this salad ahead of time and add the corn chips and salad dressing just before serving. You can adapted this salad by adding kidney beans, various cheeses and croutons or crunched tortillas instead of corn chips.—Tabitha Allen, Cypress, Texas

  • 1/2 head iceberg lettuce, torn

  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 to 1 cup tortilla or corn chips
  • 1/3 cup Catalina salad dressing

"I came across this recipe a couple of years ago when I was looking for a new salad to make for a family BBQ. Everyone loved it, including my husband who is not a big salad eater, and I've been making it all summer long ever since."

"I've been making this salad since my college-dormitory days, over thirty-five years ago. It's still a favorite. For nostalgic authenticity I always use corn chips."
