  • 3/4 cup bottled chipotle marinade
  • 1/2 cup chunky-style salsa
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons bottled chipotle marinade
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    Grated peel of 1 medium lime (2 teaspoons)
    Juice of 1 medium lime (almost 1/3 cup)
  • 4 cups torn romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup frozen corn, cooked, cooled
  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper

Let stand 5 minutes; cut crosswise into 1/2-inch strips.
