this salad is mediocre at best why would you put barbecue sauce and a salad I didn't like it at all the ingredients do not go well together with barbecue sauce and ranch.

I also added some avocado and it was a very easy, and great recipe. One thing is if you want to save extras for the next day keep the dressing on the side.

I used Kraft Light 3 Cheese Ranch Salad Dressing along with KC Masterpiece Barbecue Sauce. This is a great salad!

I had been looking for a recipe to replicate the BBQ Chicken Salad at Mimi's Cafe (a great chain restaurant) and this was pretty close. I made it exactly as directed. Next time I'll add jicama...

I loved this salad. It was a nice change from the usual. I omitted the beans due to personal preference but made everything else the same. I used a bag of salad instead of 2 heads of lettuce....
