Don's Mexican Salad

Easy summer salad to make and take to any picnic. This is one of our favorite summer meals. Quick, easy and everyone loves it. 

Time to post a salad recipe! Our friend, Don, makes this salad. Every time we eat it I say to him, "Don, I need your recipe!" Here it is! It is super quick and yummy!


1 can corn
1 can red beans
1 can sliced black olives
2 c. shredded lettuce
1/2 c. mayo
1/4 cup minced green onions (I used the entire green onion)
2 T Chili sauce ( I used 5 T)
2 tsp cider vinegar (I used 3tsp)
1/2 tsp chili powder ( I used 1 tsp)
Shredded Cheddar or Mexican Cheese (optional but we use it)
Doritos or Taco chips (optional and we used Doritos)

*Combine corn, beans, olives and lettuce. Stir together mayo, onions, chili sauce, vinegar and chili powder. Add to lettuce mixture, toss and serve. Make it a heartier meal by adding shredded cheese and crushed tortilla chips or Doritos
