    Make the Salad

    Thoroughly rinse any fresh produce and pat dry. Cut or tear romaine hearts. Drain black beans, if necessary. Combine dressing and half the seasoning blend (reserve remaining for corn) in a mixing bowl. Place corn in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until warm, 1-2 minutes. Toss or gently combine corn with remaining seasoning blend. Toss or gently combine romaine, corn, and beans with dressing. Garnish with tortilla strips and guacamole. Bon appétit!
