BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad

Rated as 4.3 out of 5 Stars

"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."

  1. Mix lettuce, black beans, corn, red bell pepper, jicama, carrots, scallions, basil, and cilantro together in a large bowl. Juice 2 limes and drizzle juice over salad; toss lightly.
  2. Combine chicken and barbeque sauce in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave until chicken is warmed through, about 45 seconds.
  3. Arrange chicken and avocado on top of the salad and squeeze remaining lime over salad.


  • Cook's Note:
  • I prefer the southwestern flavor for the chicken strips.
  • Drizzle extra BBQ sauce on top of salad if desired.

The lime juice dressing really didn't add much flavor or "pizzazz" to make this salad noteworthy. I liked all the rest of the ingredients though & will be finding my own lime dressing next time.

Super delicious and so easy to make each persons with just the ingredients they want on their salad.

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...
