I absolutely loved this salad. All of the ingredients combined were so fresh and delicious. The salad dressing is definitely a must to make with this. It is truly amazing!

  • 3 cups cooked and shredded chicken
  • 2 cups BBQ sauce, homemade or storebought (Highly recommend Sweet Baby Ray's)
  • 2 romaine hearts, chopped
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 1/2 cups corn
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese (cubed or shredded)
  • 2 ounces Monterey Jack Cheese (cubed or shredded)
  • tortilla strips
Salad Dressing:
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoons fresh cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1 garlic clove, finely minced
  • 1/2 tespoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1.  Cook and shred your chicken.  I always throw it into the crockpot with some chicken broth and let it slow cook all day.  Then I will drain the juices and shred it.  Once you shred your chicken, add the 2 cups of BBQ sauce to the chicken.  Set aside until ready to use.
2.  If you are making the salad dressing, whisk together the mayonnaise, buttermilk, chopped cilantro, lime juice, white vinegar, sugar, garlic, salt, cayenne pepper, black pepper, cumin and BBQ sauce.  Set aside until ready to use.
3.  In a large bowl, toss the romaine, red onion, cilantro, corn, and black beans.  You can either add about 1/2 cup of the salad dressing to this, or serve it on the side.
4.  Top salad with the cheese and tortilla strips.  Enjoy!
