Barbecue Chicken Salad
I developed this recipe yesterday as my wife and I planned our meals for the week. Typically, Carissa will tell me the type of dish she wants and I come up with the recipe in my head to put my own spin on it. It’s a pretty good system that usually works out well. Not to say that recipe I develop is perfect and tasty – I have had my share of misses, but this weekend ritual of ours has taken an otherwise mundane task and turned it into something I look forward to on a weekly basis.
I cooked the chicken low and slow on my charcoal grill to achieve a delicious smoky flavor that perfectly cuts through the sweet, creamy and tangy barbeque ranch dressing. This salad turned out to be the perfect, light summer dish. Give this recipe a try the next time you’re looking for something on the grill other than burgers, dogs and brats.
