Eata Fajita Salad

This is another entry from the "Looneyspoons Collection"  cookbook.  Honestly, everything I try from this cookbook is fabulous.  this is a warm fajita salad with a chili-lome dressing.  Yum!  Today is Super Bowl Sunday.  I made up this salad, without the chicken.  We just served it up on our plates and ate it with some chips and beef and bean burritos.
Great game day food.  Heck, great anytime food.

For the dressing:
1/2 c. sour cream
2 1/2 T. lime juice
1 t. sugar
1/4 t. each: chili powder and cumin
Mix all ingredients well.  Serve over the salad.

For the salad:
1 head romaine lettuce, sliced
3 green onions, sliced
1 red and 1 yellow pepper, sliced
1/2 can black olives, sliced
1 large tomato sliced
1/2 c. salsa
1/4 c. cilantro, minced
1/2 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
Layer all ingredients on a plate in order, beginning with the lettuce.
The original recipe also calls for 4 boneless chicken breasts, cut into strips and cooked.  (This addition makes it a great dinner salad.)
