Thanks to Jenny over at Picky Palate for this very yummy salad recipe. I have been so excited to try this recipe because I LOVE salads so much. This was a BIG hit for us parents AND the kids! They even had seconds!!! I was hoping to have leftovers for lunch tomorrow but everything was GONE!!! I guess that's a good sign! I added cucumbers to our salad because the girls don't like tomatoes (weird) and I forgot to buy cilantro while I was at the store, so needless to say, I didn't add any to the dressing. In the words of my hubby...'I think this ones a keeper!' Yay!!! Also, as I was eating this, I was thinking that it would taste really yummy to have crushed tortilla chips on top too! Maybe next time!!!
BBQ Chicken Salad with Cilantro Ranch Dressing
3 cups thinly sliced Green Leaf Lettuce (I used green and red)
1/4 cup corn
1/4 cup black beans
8 grape tomatoes, halved
1 cooked grilled chicken breast
1/4 cup favorite BBQ sauce (My fave is Sweet Baby Rays..YUM!)
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup prepared ranch dressing
1 heaping tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro leaves
1. Layer lettuce, corn, black beans and tomatoes. Dice cooked chicken breast and mix with BBQ sauce. Top over salad and sprinkle with cheese. Please ranch dressing and cilantro leaves into a small bowl to combine. Drizzle over salad and serve!
**This recipe is for 1 large serving, double accordingly**
As for my workouts...I have been continuing with my P90X workouts. I haven't ran for like a week and a half:( I'm very sad...but hoping to be able to get in a run tonight after my food is digested and it cools off a bit. Last week it was too hot at the beginning of the week to run, and then at the end of the week it was raining and COLD! So I didn't get ANY running in. I am SO missing it! Thanks to one my of best friends, Diane, AKA Dave, I will be "borrowing" her treadmill for the summer so I can get my runs in! Hopefully I can get it soon! And it will fit somewhere in my house!!!!
