Add in some cooked chopped chicken or shrimp for a main meal, this salad will also pair well with French dressing instead of the ranch/salsa mixture, see The Best French Salad Dressing if you prefer a lot of beans in the salad then add in two cans, don't forget, add in the chips just before serving ;-)

  1. In a bowl mix together the ranch dressing and salsa (this can be done hours ahead and chilled.

  5. Mix in the chopped corn chips (or just sprinkle on top of salad).
