This was a great way to mix up a healthy nutritious salad to take to work. I like that the dressing is at the bottom so that the lettuce doesn't get wilted before lunchtime. I used a jar of 3-bean salad as the "mixed beans". Also, I left out the onions, just a personal preference. I put this together one evening, and then had lunch ready for the next 2 days. Just before serving, I turned the container upside down to distribute the dressing, then opened the container and tossed everything together. Very good filling salad.
