Barbecue Chicken Salad

Ah Springtime...makes me want lots of fresh produce and salads! Here's one that is oh so tasty full of fresh ingredients, and easy to make!

Barbecue Chicken Salad

2 large chicken breasts, cooked and shredded (or diced small)
1 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 head Romaine lettuce, chopped
1/2 head Iceberg lettuce, chopped
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 bunch green onions, chopped
1/2 bunch cilantro, chopped
avocado, diced
shredded cheese, Mexican blend or cheddar
Crispy tortilla strips (I use the packaged ones from the grocery store by the salad, Santa Fe flavor)
*you can also use tomatoes, altough neither me nor my husband are fans!

Stir shredded chicken in with the BBQ sauce until well coated. Of course you can use less or more sauce, it's up to you! I like quite a bit since I love the smoky flavor of BBQ sauce in a salad. Toss together the lettuce, cilantro, corn, beans, and chopped veggies. Top with shredded chicken, cheese and crispy tortilla strips. Drizzle ranch or Cilantro Ranch over salad and enjoy!
