1 head lettuce, chopped

1 red or orange pepper, chopped

1 avocado, chopped

1 medium tomato, chopped

1 bunch cilantro, chopped

1 small red onion, chopped

1 ear corn, husked and kernels removed (you can also used 1/2 cup cooked corn, but the raw corn gives a nice fresh crunch to the salad)

1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise (try Vegenaise)

1/4 cup Sriracha sauce

Place the lettuce, red pepper, avocado, tomato, cilantro, onion, corn kernels, Fritos, and black beans in large bowl or on a large platter.
