BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad

Recipe by  

"This healthy salad was adapted from one I ate at California Pizza Kitchen. The lime juice intensified by the jicama draws out the flavor of the vegetables, so an oil- or cream-based dressing is not necessary."

I made some minor changes for what I had on hand. I used jarred roasted red peppers, cucumbers instead of jicama. I tossed the lettuce with a small amount of Italian dressing, the remaining ingredients I used lime juice. I made a fresh chicken breast, chopped it up and mixed it with Guy Fieri's Asian BBQ sauce. My husband loved it. we will make again!

My girlfriend said I have now ruined restaraunt chicken salads for her. Thanks for the recipe! We made a few altercations based off our preference but hey, it's a salad, can't do too much harm, right?!

Delicious and easy! I made it after a day of running around in about 15 minutes. I left out the carrots and the jimaca, however, and finished it by LIGHTLY tossing it with a light ranch dressing. My boyfriend liked it simply with lime juice, though. Either way... It turned out great!
