bbq blt chicken salad

bbq blt chicken salad2

as promised, i am here today with an easy-peasy, healthy and delicious salad recipe (that even my husband likes!) the ingredients are not out of the ordinary: i grilled up some barbecued chicken, sliced and tossed with chopped lettuce and tomatoes, bacon*, and shredded cheddar. we like to sprinkle these on top for added crunch.

barbecue ranch dressing:
1/2 cup fat free plain greek yogurt
2 tbsp. barbecue sauce
2 tbsp. ranch dressing

mix all ingredients together and toss with salad. adjust ratios to your taste.

we enjoyed the creamy, flavorful dressing and with yogurt as its base, added fat & calories are no worry. i may just experiment with other greek yogurt dressing & dip combinations! do comment if you have a favorite. i'd love to hear.

*i prefer turkey bacon for its lower fat content. in salads, the subtle difference in taste does not bother me. feel free to use real bacon if you prefer.
