Cherie's notes for this recipe:
This is one of my favorite chicken salads. It is versatile because you can use the BBQ styled dressing it calls for or a dressing of your choice. I sometimes like to use either Ranch or Greek Feta dressing. (This recipe came from Quick Cooking recipe books)

I am always ready to try a new salad and when BLT is in the title... well, hold me back! The BBQ sauce adds an unusual and pleasantly surprising twist that caps the salad off perfectly - ideal for a summer afternoon.

Directions

1
In a small bowl, combine the 5 ingredients listed under BBQ Dressing, mix well. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
2
Place salad greens on a large platter. Sprinkle with tomatoes, chicken and bacon; garnish with eggs.
3
Drizzle with Dressing or serve the dressing on the side.

My tips...as I said in my above comment, I sometimes just serve it with Ranch or a Greek Feta Dressing. I like to use cherry tomatoes and just cut them in half. Use as many eggs as you like...and I also like to add cubed mozzarella cheese. You can also use cooked and cubed turkey instead of chicken!

I have this recipe and I always make it when I have company over. It is very easy and tasty and I always receive compliments on it. I like it because it is something different rather than the typical chicken salad recipe that is sold in the supermarket deli.

I saw this on FB yesterday and made it for dinner last night.. YUMMMMMM we loved it... so easy and I think the BBQ dressing really makes it.. might try ranch next time.. but the BBQ is really good.

So glad you liked it...Ranch Dressing is definitely good with it too!
