Southwest Salad

This semester we are trying to eat healthier. We've been good so far. Last night we had a late dinner and I was trying to think of something quick and easy I could put together. How about a salad?! Pulled the lettuce out and got it all out on the plate. Chopped up some carrots, cucumber, and tomato. Then! It came to me! A southwest salad! We had some Hidden Valley Southwest Chipotle, then added some Cuban black beans, corn, bacon bits, and tortilla strips! :) There you go a southwest salad. It was delicious!

Simple, quick, and easy!
