Southwest Macaroni Salad

My mother-in-law and I made this yesterday. It was mostly her invention. I really liked it. The amounts are not exact and this is the kind of thing that you can leave out or replace anything you don't like.

1 packet ranch, mixed with mayo and/or sour cream according to directions
1 cup fresh salsa
1-2 lbs macaroni, cooked and drained
3 cups cooked chopped chicken
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 can sliced olives
2 sliced green onions
1 chopped cucumber
handful of fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained
handful halved cherry tomatoes
salt and pepper to taste

Mix and chill.
