I made this on Wednesday for playgroup, and everybody seemed to like it. I love it. This recipe makes a big salad.
1 (24 oz.) bag Rotini pasta – cooked, drained and cooled
2 cans of black olives - sliced
1 can white kidney beans - rinsed
1 can black beans - rinsed
1 red pepper – diced
6 small tomatoes – seeded and diced
1 (12 oz.) bag of frozen corn (about 1-1/2 cups)
1 – 2 C of shredded Colby Jack cheese
2 jars of Lighthouse Salsa Ranch Dressing
1 C sour Cream
salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl, combine first 8 ingredients. Add sour cream and dressing – mix well. Top with additional cheese. Chill.
The original recipe called for garbanzo beans. This is a great recipe for using what you have on hand – the possibilities are endless with this salad. For dinner last night, I threw in some chicken – yum!
