This is a delicious salad made of 7 different layers of ingredients. It's wonderful with a meal or as a meal by itself. My kids say YUM-YUM when they see it on the table.

my sister just made this for a picnic, was just excellent, a few changes and cheats were used. we bought a bag salad with the red cabbage and carrot already in it, and cherry tomatoes were used. finally instead of pinto beans we used black beans


I absolutely love this recipe. So kid friendly and easy. A meal in itself. The only change I made was the avocado. I used thawed frozen peas instead. My daughter rated it A+++++.


Loved this salad. My husband and I both kept going back "for just a little more." I used light ranch and reduced the amount by half. Also used 2% cheese and half the chips. Added a layer of salsa over the beans (for the flavor and to make up for the reduced dressing) and saved the chips for a last minute topping. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
