Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method

1/3 Cup olive or veg oil
2 Tbl. lime juice or vinegar
2 Tbl. chopped fresh parsley or cilantro (partial to parsley myself)
1-1/2 tsp. sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt, optional
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (11 oz) can corn, drained
1 medium sweet pepper, julienned (red looks pretty)
1/3 Cup sliced green onions
6 Cups torn romaine
1 1/2 Cups cooked chicken strips

In a jar with a tight-fitting lid, combine the first eight ingredients; shake well and set aside.

In a bowl, toss beans, corn, pepper and onions; set aside.

Arrange romaine on individual plates or large platter; top with bean mixture and chicken. Drizzle with dressing.

This is especially good with leftover grilled chicken which has been marinated.
