Hi, this is registered dietitian Vandana Sheth. Today, I'm gonna show you how to make a seven layer salad. I'm gonna start off by using some romaine lettuce, just put it into your big bowl. And romaine lettuce is really high in some vitamins, especially folate, potassium. It's a nice refreshing green. You're gonna add some pinto beans to add some protein. You could add black beans, or kidney beans, any kind of beans you like. I like to use different colors to make the salad look attractive. And if you're using canned beans, make sure you rinse them thoroughly so you can cut back on the sodium as well. Next I'm gonna be adding some, a combination of chopped cilantro and green onions. So that smells good and adds a little bit of crunch and flavor. Next step, some fresh corn, or you can use it from a can, just rinse it out if you're using it from a can. And look at that, it's starting to look really colorful and pretty, and of course healthy. Next we're adding some avocados. They make this salad tasty, they're heart healthy, they have some good fat, and add a creamy texture. My last few ingredients are tomatoes. I've added some chopped tomatoes to the salad to add a little red. And we're gonna finally add some black olives. That looks so pretty. I'm gonna drizzle it with some homemade cilantro jalapeno dressing, but you can use any dressing that you'd like. If you like ranch, or you like a lemon vinaigrette, you can do that. But a cilantro and jalapeno kind of pickup the same Mexican-infused spices. Add a little salt and pepper. And here you have it. Seven layer salad. This is registered dietitian Vandana Sheth.
