This quick and easy salad is sure to please. My mom made it once a week during the summer. French bread goes great with it!

Top Review by Miss Annie

This salad was very unusual. I would never have thought to put hot chili over greens, but the taste was very good. The Fritos added a crunchy texture which was good because my lettuce did wilt a bit. We enjoyed eating it very much. I think next time I make it, I will throw in a few finely minced fresh jalapeños to kick up the heat a bit. You could also use chili with jalapeños instead of fresh. Thanks for sharing this unusual, but very good recipe.
