When I was growing up I hated salad. I would totally gag if I even would taste it. It wasn’t until I had had my first baby that I forced myself to start liking it. I would wrap chicken up in a lettuce leaf and then hurry and eat it! I knew it was good for me and I wanted to start eating better. So, if I like a salad, then it HAS to be amazing! If you are ready to experience the best salad ever, then start with this one! Since I made this a month ago, I have made it every week. It is the most delicious mouthwatering salad, and with the salad dressing on top it is out of this world. I promise. This is amazing!
Rating: 5 stars Difficulty of Recipe: 2 stars Review: 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!
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!
