This salad was great soon after preparation but after a few hours in the fridge the lettuce was soggy and the dressing became watery. Don't wait too long to eat it and you'll love it! Kraft makes the best bottled ranch dressing I've tried but I will use homemade next time. Also don't use ranch-style black beans. The black color is not very appetizing when it hits the veggies!

I've had this in my recipe box for ages but haven't made as I never seen Ranch-style beans. I found them in Meijer last week. This salad is absolutely outstanding! I omitted the green bell pepper as I don't like it raw and pretty much just eyeballed the other ingredients. We loved it. I'll definitely make it again. Thanks Leslie! Read More

Much better than I thought it would be. After I made it I thought this is just another salad but the different vegetables went together really well. I made a few substitutions: used finely chopped sweet onion spring mix lettuce and chili beans no radishes. Made a great meal salad. Read More

This is an interesting & delicious salad option! Our HyVee had the beans so the recipe was extremely easy to pull together. I made this 2 different times & preferred the salad with Spicy Doritos--added a nice touch. This salad will be my secret weapon for potlucks from now on--especially since I hate it when there are 4 of the same kinds of dishes. Try this salad it's worth the effort! Read More
