The year is 1972.
I am on the phone with my mother.
(Remember making long distance calls?).
I need a salad recipe that is no fail
for my first dinner party,
and my skill set is a little shaky.
Ranch Style Bean Salad
Don’t worry about amounts ladies.
You can not ruin this salad.
I am sure that is why my mother suggested it.
This next step is important.
Before beginning, play a country western song from the 70’s on your stereo .
There Stands the Glass by Johnny Bush.
You can now begin.
Rinse, drain, and chill 2 cans of ranch style beans
Chop the following:
red onion (about 1/4 cup)
1 green bell pepper
Gently combine the vegetables with the ranch style beans .
Add a generous sprinkling of grated cheese.
Drizzle with Catalina dressing until everything is coated.
Before serving, add 1 package of fritos.
