Food Fun Friday- Southwestern Cobb Salad

It is officially the dog-days of summer.
please no cooking
I found this recipe at Our Family Treat and had most everything COOKED UP (hard boiled eggs, chicken, pre-cooked bacon

1 head lettuce
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
2 chicken breasts grilled and shredded
1/4 red onion
1 avocado diced
1 C corn kernels
3 hard boiled eggs, sliced
5 slices bacon, chopped up
1 C shredded cheese
5 tablespoons sour cream
2 limes, juiced (1/4 C)
1 1/2 tsp honey
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
salt and pepper
dash of hot sauce
tortilla chips

Layer the Salad items: chips, lettuce, chicken, bacon, beans, red onion, avocado, corn, cheese and egg.
Mix: dressing items drizzle and ENJOY

the dog days of summer NO COOKING meal= (you could get a chicken roast at the store so as not to have to cook a whole chicken on your NON COOKING dog days of summer salad day, precooked bacon but then there's the hard boiled eggs to contend with.. unless your store carries them too)
