Frito Salad...a great side dish for barbeque
All the BBQ restaurants around here ( Texas) seem to offer the same thing...beans & slaw. Sometimes I go that route too...but I often like to serve a crisp salad that doubles as a vegetable. Our favorite is "Frito Salad"
1 large bag Meditteranian Salad ( with endive & raddicco )
1 chopped large red ( oh, give ma a break they are purple ) onion
diced tomato to taste
sliced, drained black olives if you like 'em
sliced, diced, or chopped peppers if you like 'em
2 cans Ranch Style beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup shredded Colby Jack ( or more! )
1 large bottle Catalina dressing ( we use the Fat Free Kraft )
Toss all this together at least 30 minutes before serving. Just before serving toss with 1 cup ( or more) regular Frito's.....
My non-green stuff eating hubby and son will even eat this!
