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!

kitchenelf, this salad can be a complete meal ...add a can of drained whole kernal mexi-corn and add to salad before chilling, then brown 1 lb hamburger,add a pack of taco seasoning.....and add the hot meat mixture to the salad just before serving. I've also served it with slices of grilled chicken cooked with southwest seasonings. I make the salad indoors with the a/c on high cool, and let the hubby grill the chicken outside in the Texas heat! ;)
