This hearty salad is super simple, and everyone who tries it asks for the recipe. So here it is.

This Salad is an easy popular family main dish. When I have leftover chicken - or nothing in the fridge - this is what I prepare.

It's always a hit at parties.

Easy to make ahead too.

Prep time:
Servings: 4 servings


  • 1 Head Lettuce - choose your favorite - chopped
  • 1 cup Frozen Corn
  • 8 oz can Black Beans
  • 2.25 can of Sliced Olives
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • (If desired) chopped cooked chicken or seasoned ground beef
  • (if desired) chopped red onion
  • 1 or 2 Chopped Avocado
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • Corn Chips - Broken into small pieces
  • Dressing:
  • 1/2 Ranch, 1/2 Barbecue Sauce


  1. Chop the lettuce very small
  2. Drain & Add can black beans & olives
  3. Add corn, tomatoes, meat (if desired), avocado, onion
  4. Just before serving, add cheese, dressing.
  5. When ingredients are all lightly coated with the dressing, add the broken up chips.
  6. Hint: When I make ahead, I keep the chips, dressing & cheese all separate until I serve. I've also added the frozen corn at home if I had over an hour before serving - to keep the salad cool.
