Ingredients (4 servings):

For the salad:

  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 boneless, skinless thin-sliced chicken breasts
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 3 Tablespoons BBQ sauce, or more, to taste
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 avocado, halved, seeded, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup canned corn kernels, drained
  • 1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed

For the buttermilk dressing:

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Directions:

  1. To make the buttermilk ranch dressing, whisk together buttermilk, Greek yogurt, sour cream, dill, parsley, garlic powder, salt and pepper, to taste, in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; set aside.
  3. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper, to taste. Add to skillet and cook, flipping once, until cooked through, about 3-4 minutes per side. Let cool before dicing into bite-size pieces.
  4. In a medium bowl, add chicken and BBQ sauce, and gently toss to combine; set aside.
  5. Place eggs in a large saucepan and cover with cold water by 1 inch. Bring to a boil and cook for 1 minute. Cover eggs with a tight-fitting lid and remove from heat; set aside for 8-10 minutes. Drain well and let cool before peeling and dicing.
  6. To assemble the salad, place romaine lettuce in a large bowl; top with arranged rows of bacon, BBQ chicken, eggs, tomatoes, avocado, corn and beans.
  7. Serve immediately with buttermilk ranch dressing.
  8. Enjoy!
