BBQ Grilled Chicken Ranch Salad

Nourishes: 1


  • 1 Tbsp. BBQ sauce (homemade or brand without high fructose corn syrup: Whole Foods’ 365 or Dinosaur brand)
  • 2 Tbsp. Greek plain yogurt or honey flavor
  • 1 tsp. ranch dressing mix packet
  • ¼ cup chopped tomato
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped red onion
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped red peppers (roast peppers for added flavor)
  • ¼ cup diced cucumber
  • ¼ cup black, garbanzo or kidney beans
    OPTIONAL: I recommend some cooked orzo with this recipe (adds some carbs to the nutritional profile)
  • 3 ounces grilled, chilled chicken breast
  • 2-3 cups cut greens
  • 2 Tbsp. shredded cheese (gouda goes well with chicken ranch flavor)
  • A few chow mein noodles or walnuts on top for some crunch

Methodology: Mix the BBQ sauce, yogurt and seasoning. Place in bottom of jar. Layer the jar in the order of the recipe. Close lid tightly and refrigerate. When ready dump ingredients from jar into bowl or give a shake for a few seconds and enjoy.
