A good salad that everyone should try. Instead of the dressing mix and sour cream I just used an 8 ounce container of ranch dip.

I had this (or a version) at a potluck recently and said WOW!, I gotta make it for my potluck Monday.

I made some substitutes to lower the fat mainly: only one can of beans; a yellow pepper rather than green & red; a 1/2 bottle of Ranch dressing Lite + about 1 cup plain lowfat yogurt; 2% shredded cheddar cheese; cut most of the fat from the bacon; and only used 2 tomatoes (I forgot the 3rd). I also sprinkled sliced black olived on top (wish I'd thought to put them all through). Plus, since I didn't do it yesterday, I mixed it up with my fingers so that all would get moisture as it wouldn't have enough time to marinate. Other thoughts could be to make the cornbread with pepper jack cheese and throw a little salsa into the dressing!
