I never thought I could get my husband on board for eating a salad for dinner but the BBQ chicken really gives this some substance. The way this salad is served is perfect for the pickiest eater because it allows the diners to pick and choose which veggies they like. This dish has easily won a place on my table for the summer months. The veggies can be swapped out for whatever you like or whatever is fresh in your garden.

Since the chicken is cooked in a slow cooker, this is basically a dump and go dinner. Perfect for the summer when you don't want to heat the kitchen by turning on the stove. The chicken soaks up the flavor of the BBQ sauce and is super tender. Setting up a mini salad bar is perfect so everyone can customize their salad. A very versatile recipe that can be thrown together with what vegetables you have. This simple salad reminded us of a lazy summer day. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
