Directions

In a large bowl, toss together all of the ingredients except for the chips with the salad dressing. Divide the chips among 6 plates and top each with the salad.

Notes

Note: As an alternative, you can serve the salad with sour cream and salsa instead of Italian dressing. Mix together the salad ingredients in a bowl, serve over chips, and drizzle a blended mixture of 1 cup sour cream and 1/3 cup salsa.
