  3. Next, add half of the black beans.
  4. On top of the beans, add half of the corn.
  5. After the corn, pile on half of the bell peppers.
  6. Following the bell peppers, sprinkle half of the tomatoes on top.
  7. Toss half of the cheddar cheese on top of the tomato layer.
  8. Drizzle half of the dressing onto the salad.
  9. Repeat steps 2 through 8.
  10. Finally, place the green onions on top of the salad and enjoy!
