A healthy, hearty salad that is also pretty gorgeous if I don’t say so myself! Loaded with tons of good for you ingredients – chicken, eggs, avocado, veggies and black beans.
We ended up using bottled Ranch dressing to top this. If you want to make this even healthier, feel free to try your hand at making your own, or stick with a simple vinaigrette. I actually did try making my own Ranch, but it just didn’t cut it for me. Although I didn’t have buttermilk and tried to substitute it – so really, it’s my bad and when I have the proper ingredients, I’ll try it again and let you know how it turns out!
My husband, who is not a salad man AT ALL, loved this. It’s so filling! And we love barbecue chicken anything in our house. Also, I think I eat an avocado a day. I can’t get enough of them. You’ll love the crunchy bits of turkey bacon and the sweet bites of corn. What can I say? Everything just goes so well together. Enjoy!! I know we did!
1 tablespoon grill seasoning (I use McCormick Spicy Grill seasoning)
1/4 cup barbecue sauce (your favorite bottled or homemade)
3 small heads Romaine lettuce
4 strips turkey bacon, cooked and chopped
1 cup canned corn
1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
1 Roma tomato, diced
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped
Add the olive oil to a medium skillet and heat on medium. Add the diced chicken and sprinkle with grill seasoning. Cook for approximately 6-8 minutes until chicken is cooked through. Remove from heat, add barbecue sauce and toss to coat. Set aside.
While the chicken is cooking, wash and chop the Romaine. Place in a big, wide bowl. Assemble the salad by placing rows of the corn, eggs, avocado, chicken, turkey bacon, tomato and black beans (really any order you like!).
