Southwest Tuna Salad

Sounds like a great potluck, summer get together meal.

2-6 oz can of Tuna, drained and chunked (I prefer the light not albacore for less mercury)
10 oz lettuce washed and torn (grab a bag of your fav blend)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 pk (10 oz) frozen corn kernals, thawed
8 oz low fat ranch dressing (I am thinking this can be cut back to 4-6 oz)
1 jar (16 oz) salsa (or get the fresh from the produce section)
1 1/2 c shredded cheddar cheese (find low fat or cut back to maybe 1 c)

In a large bowl (a trifle bowl will make a pretty presentation) layer half the lettuce, tuna, beans, corn and ranch dressing, repeat layers. Top with salsa sprinkle w/ cheese. Cover and chill 1-2 hours before serving. (recipe says serves 6)
