Black Bean Taco Salad w/ Lime Vinaigrette

This recipes is from my sister Katie. She says, "This salad is crazy good but time consuming to make the dressing. You can double the recipe and then freeze it in 1 cup portions for later."

Black Bean Taco Salad: Chop as much of these things as you like then toss with the dressing.

Head Romaine lettuce

Chopped cooked chicken

Cherry tomatoes, sliced in half

Chopped red onion

Frozen white corn, thawed

Can black beans, rinsed and drained

Shredded cheese

Avocado, chopped

Lime Vinaigrette: Combine these ingredients and process in a blender or food processor until smooth.

1⁄2 cup seeded tomato (I usually use 1 can diced tomatoes with its juice)

1⁄2 cup fresh cilantro

1⁄4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons cider vinegar

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (about 1/2 large lime)
