Mexican Salad

Do you love a good salad? I know I do! My mom got this recipe from her mom, so it's been in the family for a while. Good news is I'm going to share it with you guys! It's simple and scrumptious. It would be fantastic paired with a hot tortilla soup, don't ya think?

1 head of lettuce (washed and chopped)
1 tomato (diced)
1 cucumber (diced)
1 bunch of green onions (diced
1 bag of Fritos (crushed)
1 can Ranch Style beans (drained)
cheddar cheese (shredded)
1 package of dry ranch dressing mix (follow the directions on the back for making it into a dressing)

Dump all of your veggies into a large bowl. Add the canned beans, cheese, and dressing. Toss well. Add the Fritos right before serving. They get really mushy if they sit in the dressing for long. Serve with soup and crackers, or eat it by itself.
