I created this dish by accident when I decided to add a salad next to the Frito Pie I had just created. I found that blending the 2 was a very delicious and refreshing combination!

  2. Create a round hole in the middle of the salad about 4 or 5 inches in diameter by pushing the salad outward toward the edge of the plate.
  3. Pile the Fritos into the hole and top with half the onions and half of the cheese.
