Mexi Ranch Chicken Salad

I love this salad with chicken, corn, beans, tomatoes, tortilla chips, and an awesome salsa ranch dressing on top!

I have been all about fitting salads into my meal plan lately. Maybe it's because of the warm weather or maybe it's because I just love love love salads! This one is slightly different than most of the recipes I've been serving up on Taco Tuesdays. It has red beans instead of black beans and there are tortillas chips for some added crunch. I also loved the mix of salsa and ranch dressing too. I'm not sure if that is how Southwest Ranch is made, but it definitely tastes a lot like it.
