My Mom sent this recipe to me many years ago. I still have the original hand written recipe (on the back of a church news letter)with comments in her hand writing. If you have lost your Mom, you know little things like this are precious treasures to you. Anyway, this is a delicious salad.
1At least 2 hours before serving time, drain the pinto beans; combine with the Catalina dressing and marinate in refrigerator.
2At serving time add to the bowl of salad greens: bean mixture, the entire bag of Fritos and the grated cheese. Toss well.
