Hungry Girl Salad

Sometimes, like after a walk with the dog to the library and grocery store, you need a really big, filling salad. To that end my sister came up with this hungry girl salad which uses Yumm Sauce, hot sauce, and lime juice as the dressing.  I was trying to think of a replacement for anyone who doesn't live in the NW, but it turns out you can buy Yumm Sauce over the phone.  It's basically a lemon-garlic tahini sauce.

Also, according to Megan you have to make and then eat each portion in its own huge bowl, for sufficient mixing.  There's a little bit of rice and beans and tortilla chips mixed in with the lettuce for protein and to make it filling, but the end result is that there really isn't a graceful way to eat this salad.

Hungry Girl Salad, made up by Megan:
Serves 2

1 head of romaine lettuce, chopped and washed
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 cup cooked (or canned) black beans
1 cup tomato, diced
2-3 Tbsp. Yumm Sauce
1-2 tsp. hot sauce
juice of a lime
handful of tortilla chips, smashed

Split all ingredients except for tortilla chips between two large bowls.  Mix until dressing is sufficiently coating ingredients.  Taste and add more Yumm Sauce, hot sauce, or lime juice to your taste.  Crumble tortilla chips over salad.  Eat!  You're hungry!
