Layered Southwestern Salad

Unlike many salads, this one is a great make-ahead dish. Since each layer is tossed separately with vinaigrette, it's also especially delicious.

Toss beans with ⅓ cup vinaigrette in a bowl. Toss bell pepper and jalapeño with ⅓ cup vinaigrette in a separate bowl. Toss tomatoes with remaining vinaigrette in a third bowl.

Layer salad ingredients in a 2-quart bowl in the following order: beans, peppers, corn, cheese, and tomatoes.
