I like this salad because I can prepare all the ingredients ahead of time and just throw it together at the last minute. Barbecue sauce in the dressing gives a different taste to this green salad that features the fun fixings for a BLT chicken sandwich. Even picky eaters love it. -Cindy Moore, Mooresville, North Carolina

"Delicious! The only substitutes I made were turkey instead of chicken, and whole grape tomatoes for chopped tomatoes."

"This was fabulous! The whole family raved about it. We added avocado and shredded cheese. My daughter did not like the dressing but she was fine with table dressing."

"Great salad! We made it with grilled chicken that had a spicy chicken rub on it. I added green onions to the salad and my husband added shredded cheddar cheese to his salad. Both were delicious additions. I loved this dressing and my kids have used it for a chicken nugget dipping sauce as well. This recipe will be a staple in our house this summer. Yummy!!!!"

"This was delicious! I marinated chicken in herb & garlic before grilling and used pepper bacon. The eggs were a surprisingly good flavor blend."
