Gluten Free Tex Mex Salad

I didn’t feel like cooking the other night and my husband suggested a large gluten-free salad.  I started with lettuce and started adding ingredients one at a time, and ended up with this wonderful Mexican salad, which I thoroughly enjoyed!  You can top it off with broken gluten-free tortilla chips.  I had some blue corn tortilla chips on hand.  It made a bit colorful, as well.  I like saving the broken chips at the bag for salad or casserole use.  Make your own and add your favorite ingredients!
