I used 1/2 of a 15 ounce can of black beans and about a cup of frozen corn. Only used romaine lettuce mix, no spinach. I had left over beef and mexican rice from a restaurant meal, so I used those in the salad. We really liked the combination of all the ingredients. Next time will add some chopped sweet onion.
