  • 1/4 cup reduced fat ranch salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat vinaigrette salad dressing
  • 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1 large head romaine lettuce, shredded (about 12 cups)
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes cut in half
  • 1 cup shredded reduced fat Cheddar cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 1 cup fresh, thawed frozen or drained canned whole kernel corn
  • 1 medium avocado, pitted, peeled and cut into cubes (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup sliced pitted ripe olive

  • 1 cup crumbled Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals Cheese Crisps – Four Cheese Medley (about 30)
  • 1 cup shredded cooked beef or chicken or cooked shrimp
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves



  1. Stir the ranch dressing, vinaigrette dressing and salsa in a small bowl.
  2. Place the lettuce onto a serving platter. Arrange the tomatoes, cheese, corn, avocado, olives, beans, cheese crisps and beef, if desired, in rows on the lettuce to form a “rainbow”. Sprinkle with the cilantro. Serve with the dressing mixture.
