  • 4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 3 large fresh basil leaves chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 cup rinsed and drained black beans
  • 1/4 cup drained sweet corn
  • 1/4 cup grated monterey jack cheese or mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup peeled and diced jicama
  • 1/4-1/2 cup prepared ranch dressing such as Hidden Valley
  • 1 large tomato diced
  • 1 ripe avocado sliced
  • 1 leftover grilled chicken breast chilled and diced
  • 1/4-1/2 cup prepared bbq sauce such as KC Masterpiece Original


  • In a large bowl, combine lettuce with basil, cilantro, black beans, corn, cheese and jicama. Toss with ranch dressing {as much as you'd like} and divide between two serving bowls.
  • Place diced tomatoes around the edges of each bowl, top with avocado slices and diced grilled chicken. Drizzle bbq sauce over top the whole thing and serve.
  • *If you did not grill your chicken with BBQ sauce, dice your cooled chicken breast, toss in a little bbq sauce, place on salad and drizzle with more sauce.
