Southwest Salad

This is a good day... J came home early and surprised me with gorgeous multi-color roses for now reason. And he even went for a run outside with me after work to take advantage of one of the "cooler" days in Florida. Since we were on a roll I decided to make us a light and refreshing salad for dinner. I had recently found Chipotle Ranch salad dressing at Whole Foods which I had been looking for a good one for a while and was very excited to use!

This year J planted a small herb garden in a big pot in our backyard! After years of living in an apartment and killing all plants I was so excited to have one and J to keep it alive. I was able to use some of the fresh cilantro in our salad tonight. Although after washing it I went to cut it up and a tiny spider crawled out!

 Southwest Salad
1/2 cup drained and rinsed black beans (no salt added)
1/2 cup drained canned corn
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
Cilantro to taste
1 1/2 Romaine Hearts (washed and cut)
Chipotle Ranch Dressing

I drained and rinsed the corn and black beans. Then diced the red pepper and cilantro and mixed it all up in a bowl ahead of time. I added the mixture to the salad and tossed with the salad dressing. I wish I had some tortilla chips in the house to add for crunch but was still delicious anyway. After our healthy dinner we are ready to watch Biggest Loser!
