  6 Tbsp reduced-calorie mayonnaise   
  3 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, finely chopped   
  3 Tbsp water   
  1 medium uncooked scallion(s), minced   
  1 1/2 Tbsp fresh lime juice   
  2 tsp sugar   
  1/2 tsp chili powder   
  15 oz canned black beans, rinsed and drained   
  1 1/2 cup(s) cooked corn kernels, fresh or frozen   
  2 cup(s) grape tomatoes   
  1 medium sweet red pepper(s), cut into thin strips (about 1 1/2 cups)   
  8 cup(s) romaine lettuce, cut into thick shreds (about 2 hearts)   


  • To make dressing, in a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, cilantro, water, scallion, lime juice, sugar and chili powder until smooth. Transfer to a jar or a plastic container with a tight-fitting lid and refrigerate until ready to use.
  • In a large bowl or food storage container, layer remaining ingredients in order listed; cover and refrigerate.
  • To serve, spoon salad ingredients into a bowl. Shake dressing and then drizzle dressing over salad; toss well to coat. Yields about 2 cups of salad and 1 1/2 tablespoons of dressing per serving.


  • Storing this salad in layers (instead of tossing it immediately) and keeping the dressing separate, helps to keep the salad fresh. It can be stored up to 4 days in the refrigerator.
