Ingredients

Salad

  • 4 cups torn romaine lettuce
  • 3 cups cut-up cooked chicken
  • 1 can (15 oz) Progresso™ black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes
  • 2 ripe medium mangoes, seed removed, peeled and chopped

Dressing

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, if desired
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Red pepper sauce, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In 3-quart glass trifle bowl, layer lettuce, chicken, black beans, tomatoes and mangoes.
  • 2
    In jar with tight-fitting lid, shake dressing ingredients. Drizzle over salad; serve immediately. Or, cover and refrigerate salad and dressing separately up to 4 hours; drizzle salad with dressing just before serving.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Mix the flavor of this salad up by substituting fresh mint for the cilantro and pineapple or papaya for the mangoes.
  • tip 2
    If you don’t have a trifle bowl, toss all the salad ingredients in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing, or pass the dressing separately.
