This is very similar to a salad at a popular restaurant near my house. I loved it there and decided to make it at home. It's one of my favorite salads to make now!

Very tasty, a whole family pleaser. I will do a few things differently next time though. 1. Salt and pepper the chicken before grilling. 2. Use less lettuce. Unless they're very small, two heads are too much. 3. Add another tomato. My wife suggested using less barbeque sauce in the dressing, so you might try adding the bbq sauce to the dressing to taste.

Excellent! I used a bag of lettuce to make things easier. I also left off the Fried Onions to make it a little bit healthier. Next time I will add some crunched up tortilla chips for some "crunch". I also added some red onion and cheese. I used fat free ranch dressing and I couldn't tell once it was mixed with the barbeque sauce. This makes a great and easy lunch!

I got all thumbs up on this recipe from my family!!! It was incredibly easy to throw together...I did add some garlic powder blend to the chicken prior to grilling to spice it up a bit. I also crumbled up some tortilla chips and put them on the salad instead of using the fried canned onions...I served it with the Waikiki cornbread and everybody couldn't stop raving!!!
