1 (16 ounce) bottle
Ranch-style salad dressing
1 (13.5 ounce) package

This salad was great soon after preparation but after a few hours in the fridge, the lettuce was soggy and the dressing became watery. Don't wait too long to eat it and you'll love it! Kraft makes the best bottled ranch dressing I've tried, but I will use homemade next time. Also, don't use ranch-style black beans. The black color is not very appetizing when it hits the veggies!
I make a similar version of this, but its more of a main dish. I brown hamburger and toss it with the ranch style beans, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, black olives, green peppers, ranch, shredded cheese and Doritos.
This recipe is absolutey wonderful! My girlfriend requests this recipe very often!
I've had this in my recipe box for ages, but haven't made as I never seen Ranch-style beans. I found them in Meijer last week. This salad is absolutely outstanding! I omitted the green bell pepper as I don't like it raw, and pretty much just eyeballed the other ingredients. We loved it. I'll definitely make it again. Thanks, Leslie!
Much better than I thought it would be. After I made it, I thought this is just another salad, but the different vegetables went together really well. I made a few substitutions: used finely chopped sweet onion, spring mix lettuce, and chili beans, no radishes. Made a great meal salad.
HUGE salad. But quite good.
This is an interesting & delicious salad option! Our HyVee had the beans so the recipe was extremely easy to pull together. I made this 2 different times & preferred the salad with Spicy Doritos--added a nice touch. This salad will be my secret weapon for potlucks from now on--especially since I hate it when there are 4 of the same kinds of dishes. Try this salad, it's worth the effort!
With all the vegetables and chopping required, this salad was just too much work. The ratio of vegetables to lettuce was off (too many veggies, not enough lettuce) - didn't seem like a "salad." Not a bad taste, but not memorable and not easy.
