Ingredients

For the salad:

  • 1/4 cup diced roasted red peppers [or to make from scratch – 1 red pepper, diced + 1 tsp olive oil, salt & pepper]
  • 1 bunch lettuce
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup canned corn kernels
  • Handful tortilla chips, crushed
  • BBQ sauce, to drizzle

For the dressing:

  • 1/4 olive oil
  • 1/4 cup cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp sriracha
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. If making roasted peppers from scratch, place the diced pepper, olive oil, and pinch of salt and pepper on a baking sheet pan and roast until soft and slightly charred, about 15 minutes. In the meantime, mix together the dressing ingredients. Assemble the salad – add lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, and corn to a salad bowl. Place crushed tortilla chips in the center. Add the roasted peppers to the salad, drizzle with dressing and BBQ sauce.
