A quick, flexible salad designed to use up leftover barbecued chicken.


  • leftover Old-Fashioned BBQ Chicken, chopped into bite-sized pieces, or just brush your favorite BBQ sauce on some chicken and grill it up.
  • Blue Cheese Dressing, or a high-quality ranch, like this Buttermilk Ranch Dressing
  • Leafy green lettuce (I like Romaine)
  • Hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • Chopped green onions or sliced red onions
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Blue cheese (if not using aforementioned dressing) or sharp cheddar cheese
  • Avocado cubes
  • Crumbled bacon



Wash and chop lettuce (if not buying pre-washed, pre-chopped lettuce). Blot with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
Arrange lettuce on large dinner plates and add a handful of BBQ chicken. Arrange remaining ingredients on top–you can either keep all the toppings separate and let dinner-eaters mix it up according to their liking, or you can just go WILD and sprinkle everything on top. Serve with dressing and enjoy!
