BBQ Chicken Cobb Salad

How is that for a delicious looking salad?  That particular configuration is a sure fire way to get my kiddos to eat salad for dinner.  For some reason, my little ones go nuts over "striped" toppings.  I just thought it looked cool, but whatever gets them to eat their veggies!

This salad is a favorite of ours during the summer months when it's to hot to eat much else.  But it makes a great, nutritious, filling meal any time.  The platter is always licked clean and it's food I can feel good about serving my family.

BBQ Chicken Cobb Salad
Serves 8

1 head romaine lettuce, cut up
1 head iceberg lettuce, cut up  
6 strips bacon, cooked until crisp and crumbled
6 hard boiled eggs, chopped
4 boneless, skinless chicke breasts, grilled and cut into chunks
1 cup shredded cheddar or colby jack cheese
2 tomatoes, chopped
4 green onions, sliced
1 1/2 cups ranch salad dressing
1/2-3/4 cup BBQ sauce

Mix the lettuce and place on a serving platter.  Top with bacon, eggs, chicken, cheese, tomatoes and green onions.

In a bowl, mix the ranch dressing and BBQ sauce.  Taste it to make sure there is enough BBQ flavor to suit you.  Serve with the salad.
