Directions
1. Whisk all dressing ingredients in small bowl. Let stand at room temperature 10 minutes. (Dressing can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)

2. In deep 10-cup clear glass bowl or baking dish, layer half of the lettuce. Top with corn, tomato, avocado, bell pepper, beans, remaining lettuce, onion and cheese, spreading each to sides so layers will show. Spread dressing over top, covering cheese completely.
