Caribbean Layered Salad


1/3 cup bottled honey mustard salad dressing
1 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
2 tsp Caribbean jerk seasoning
1/2 tsp ground cumin

Salad: combine and mix well...

3 cups shredded romaine lettuce
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 (15oz.) can black beans, rinse and drain
1 ripe mango, diced
1/2 cup diced plum tomatoes
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup roasted cashews

1/2 cup grated carrot
chopped fresh cilantro

For a fun, festive presentation... in a glass bowl, layer in order the lettuce, 1 cup cheese, beans, mango, tomato, green onion, remaining cheese on top. Drizzle with the salad dressing.

Pair the salad with any fancy umbrella drink you so desire and enjoy!
