I love BBQ chicken salads in the summertime. What could possibly be better? The dressing for this recipe comes from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe (one of my favorite foodie bloggers). I used this dressing on my usual BBQ chicken salad and it was out of this world good! Typically I just combine ranch dressing with BBQ sauce but this dressing was way better! I had my niece over for dinner that night and she said that it was the best homemade salad she has ever had. If you want to make a lighter dressing for this salad, use our Cilantro Verde Dressing.
In a plastic bag, combine chicken and 1 c. BBQ sauce. Seal tightly and refrigerate for at least an hour. Remove chicken from bag, discard marinade, and grill chicken on BBQ grill until cooked through. Use remaining BBQ sauce to slather over chicken while grilling. Remove from heat cut chicken into slices of cubes. Set aside.
In a large serving bowl, toss romaine with corn, black beans, and green onions. Top with shredded cheese and tortilla chips. Serve with Creamy BBQ Dressing (See below).
For the dressing, combine all the ingredients together and whisk vigorously to combine. You could also run this through a blender to make it even more smooth. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
