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. The Test Kitchen

How to Make BLT Chicken Salad

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a small bowl, combine the 5 ingredients listed under BBQ Dressing, mix well. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • 2Place salad greens on a large platter. Sprinkle with tomatoes, chicken and bacon; garnish with eggs.
  • 3Drizzle with Dressing or serve the dressing on the side.
  • 4My 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!
