    Here's another slaw for you. All of the ingredients are "to taste" so play around a bit and see what you like.

    - Empty a bag or two of slaw mix into a bowl big enough to toss/stir ingredients
    - Stir a can of drain pinto or black beans (or not), a can of corn or grilled corn off the cob (or not), a bit of cooked chorizo (or not), half a cup of shredded cheddar cheese (or not)

    - For the dressing, combine some olive oil, the juice of a lime or two, salt and pepper, and a cup or so of rinsed cilantro leaves in a blender. Blend until the leaves are chopped up and the juice and oil are emulsified. Adjust seasonings and pour over salad. Mix and enjoy!

    My family likes this one, I don't measure anymore, but you could start with a small bag of tortellini for a family meal and do more for a picnic.

    cheese tortellini, cooked then rinsed to cool
    diced ham
    sliced green onions with tops
    grape tomatoes, halved (save a couple to garnish the top)
    ranch dressing-a small bottle- you don't want it swimming in dressing.

    Chill a few hours or overnight, add a little more ranch dressing if needed.

    This is really filling so a little goes a long way.
