Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry. A robust greens and chicken salad with beans, corn, onions and cheese, dressed with.....hidden valley ranch dressing! all the flavours of the southwest in each delicious bite!
Heat the oven to 400° F . Use a pizza cutter to slice the tortillas into thin strips. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat it with non-stick spray. Spread the tortilla strips out in a single layer and spritz lightly with more non-stick spray. Sprinkle lightly with Ranch Dressing Seasoning Mix.
Bake the tortilla strips for 5-10 minutes or until they are golden brown and crispy. Stir the tortilla strips half way through cooking.
While the tortilla strips are baking, cut the head of lettuce or greens into small pieces. Rinse the greens and drain well. Chop the tomato and slice the green onions with some tops. Rinse the black beans in a colander and drain well. Thaw the corn.
Whisk together all of the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl.
You can either build one large salad or 4 Servings on chilled plate(s).
Layer the greens first, then the chicken, black beans, corn, tomato, shredded cheese, green onion, and a few tortilla strips on top. Serve and ENJOY!
