Chomp Chomp Salad

                       Like a chop chop salad, only more delicious.

½ lb. chicken breast, cooked, cooled & shredded 
1 ♥ of romaine, chopped
1 medium tomato, diced
2 ears of corn (preferably fresh)
2 green onions, finely diced
½ cup of jicama, chopped - ½” cubes
½ can of black beans, rinsed

top with a little
smoked cheddar (smoked gouda is nice too)
tortilla chips, (these are amazing + small bag = less temptation)
squeeze of lime

mix together equal parts bbq sauce & ranch dressing (I loathe ranch, but like this). When choosing a bbq sauce, read the label - almost all of them have high fructose corn syrup.

Cook the chicken. BBQ it if you can, otherwise I boil it; super easy and you don’t really have to watch it. Cool, shred, and set aside.  Prep and toss the rest of the ingredients in a bowl. Add a bit of bbq sauce to the chicken, dress the salad, place chicken on top, and add chips, cheese, cilantro, & lime to your liking.  Makes 2 - 3 big salads

TIPS: Keep this salad on hand! Prepare chicken (cook, shred, sauce), contain & refrigerate.  Prep all veggies, add beans, contain & refrigerate.  Now just chop lettuce when you’re ready to eat, add chicken, veggie/bean mix, dress and enjoy!  It’s THAT easy!
