You are probably getting tired of hearing about all the recipes I've cooked at restaurants, but that's what I did for years. I used to make this & put on the salad bar. This can be served as a main dish or a salad.
Blue Ribbon Recipe
This recipe isn't hard, but it is a little time-consuming. The results are worth every minute of preparation though. The salad is full of flavor and texture. We loved the mixture of veggies with the different meats. It's so hearty, you can have this as a main dish. Cool, refreshing and great for a summer picnic or BBQ.
Grill chicken breasts. Brush with butter on the top side. Season with chicken seasoning & California Style Garlic Salt with Parsley.
Cut into strips & then into smaller bite-size pieces. Set aside.
Cook bacon. Crumble into bite-size pieces.
Combine all other ingredients in large bowl. Use as little ranch dressing as possible. You don't want it swimming in it. You only want it to coat it & flavor it.
Add the chicken & toss to coat.
Chill at least 2 hours before serving. If you think you might need a little more dressing at this time, go ahead & add some.
