    • 1 medium head iceberg lettuce, shredded
    • 2 medium tomatoes, diced
    • ½ pound shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
    • 1 cup tomato salsa, plus more for serving
    • 1 cans (16 ounces) kidney or pinto beans, rinsed and drained

    • 1-3 teaspoons hot sauce

    Looks good but I believe ranch dressing has modified food starch. If so, then it is not Gluten Free.
