I got this recipe from The Garden Grazer, added an extra can of black beans, some grilled chicken and avocado to make it more of a meal and thought it was pretty darn tasty.

If you are not a huge cilantro fan, just top with different dressing. Maybe homemade healthy ranch? See below.

Salad Ingredients
Large head of romaine
2 (15 oz.) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 large orange bell pepper
1 pint cherry tomatoes
2 cups corn (I used frozen, thawed)
5 green onions
Strips of grilled chicken
Slices of avocado
Desired dressing

Finely chop romaine, bell pepper, tomatoes, and green onions.
Place all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine.
Top with dressing, grilled chicken and slices of avocado.

Cilantro Dressing Ingredients
1 cup loosely packed cilantro, stems removed and roughly chopped
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice (about 1/2 lime)
1-2 garlic cloves
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 tsp. white wine vinegar
1/8 tsp. salt

Puree all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.
