You get your protein without cooking meat! How awesome is that? Are you are still busy with preserving the food from your garden? No problem!

How to Make Easy Southwest Salad
You can either serve this yummy southwest salad in a big bowl or else just set everything out individually and let everyone make their own salad.
Layer the ingredients in the bowl: chopped lettuce, then drained corn and drained beans, then shredded cheese. Repeat layers until the bowl is full.
Top the salad by sprinkling it with crushed up tortilla chips.
Finally, drizzle your ranch dressing and salsa on it, then it’s time to eat! See how FAST that was?
