BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad

June 16, 2009


My friend Cammi gave me the recipe for this a-mazing salad last year, and I can’t get enough of it…it’s so yummy, and so perfect for summer!

BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad
1/2 head romaine lettuce
1/2 head iceburg lettuce
cilantro (to taste)
fresh basil (2-3 leaves, but I’ve also made it without and it’s still good)
1 c. white corn
1 c. black beans
1 c. shredded Monterey Jack cheese
tortilla strips (you can find these in the produce section with other salad toppings)
chopped tomatoes (optional)
chicken, cooked & chopped
BBQ sauce (mmm…Sweet Baby Ray’s, that’s all I have to say about that)
ranch dressing

Prepare the chicken by covering it with BBQ sauce after it is cooked and chopped, and let it chill in the refrigerator. Chop the lettuces into strips and combine with chopped cilantro and basil. Stir in corn, beans, and cheese. Just before serving, stir in about 1 cup of tortilla strips and toss with a small amount of ranch dressing. Top the salad with the BBQ chicken and drizzle the salad with a little extra BBQ sauce.

    I have been craving this salad since you made it for me. YUMMY!!! I even have some BBQ chicken and cilantro in the fridge, with this particular salad in mind. I did manage to forget to get some lettuce when I was at Walmart yesterday.
