Southwest cuisine is a fusion of Mexican, Spanish and Native American foods and cooking techniques, so why not fuse a little West Coast into that mix? The Caesar Salad, invented in California by Italian-American chef Caesar Cardini (who at one point had a restaurant in Mexico), is citrusy, cheesy and garlicky, so it works as a springboard for many flavors. In this case, salsa, corn, jalapeño and cilantro along with some chopped crispy baked chicken tenders turn a fresh salad into a refreshing, satisfying meal. Fabulous fusion in about 15 minutes!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed and well drained
  • 1/2 cup corn (canned or frozen and defrosted, well drained)
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded, finely chopped
  • 6 ounces breaded cooked chicken tenders, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2/3 cup thick and chunky salsa
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, lightly packed
  • 1 pkg. DOLE® Ultimate Caesar Salad Kit

Directions

  1. Stir together beans, corn and jalapeno in small bowl. Mix chicken, salsa and cilantro in another small bowl.
  2. Combine all ingredients in salad kit except salad dressing in large bowl. Stir bean mixture into salad.
  3. Toss with dressing. Divide salad between 4 plates. Top each with chicken mixture.
