Layered Caribbean Chicken Salad

My mom found this recipe on the Betty Crocker site. We use it as the main dish.


3 c shredded romaine lettuce
2 c cubed cooked chicken (best with grilled chicken)
1 c shredded monterey jack cheese
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 c diced peeled fresh mango
2 medium chopped seeded roma tomatoes
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
1/4-1/2 c thinly sliced green onions
1/2 c cashews
1 6 oz container pina colada yogurt
2 T lime juice
1 t McCormick Jamaican Jerk seasoning (it's gluten free)
    1. In a 3 or 4 quart clear glass serving bowl, layer salad ingredients from lettuce to green onions in order listed. 
    2. Mix yogurt, lime juice, and seasoning in a separate bowl, then spoon evenly over salad.
    3. Sprinkle cashews over top.
    Allison's Additional Notes:
    1. I don't measure the cheese, but probably don't use a full cup of each.
    2. I was out of cashews the last time I made this...sad.
