California Pizza Kitchen's Orginal BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad

I love it when I'm browsing through some of my favorite blogs and come across an amazing recipe. I spied this recipe for California Kitchen's Original BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad as a link from Posie Gets Cozy - which is a gorgeous blog BTW - in which she got from Lauren's Latest.

When Alicia said she had been making this salad at least once a week for the past few weeks, I can see why. This salad blew my mind! It is probably the BEST chopped salad I've ever had, and I know chopped salads!

I even followed Alicia's link for the Chili-Lime Chicken recipe for the chicken and was blown away again. I substituted boneless pork chops for the chicken and I promise this dish will be on repeat all summer long.

LOL, there's actual salad under all this yumminess...I promise!

California Kitchen's Original BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad
Recipe Source: Lauren's Latest

4 cups chopped romaine lettuce
3 large fresh basil leaves, chopped
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup rinsed and drained black beans
1/4 cup drained sweet corn
1/4 cup grated monterey jack or mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup peeled and diced jicama
1/4-1/2 cup prepared ranch dressing, such as Hidden Valley
1 large tomato, diced
1 ripe avocado, sliced
1 leftover grilled chicken breast, chilled and diced (or pork)

1/4-1/2 cup prepared bbq sauce, such as KC Masterpiece Original

In a large bowl, combine lettuce with basil, cilantro, black beans, corn, cheese and jicama. Toss with ranch dressing {as much as you'd like} and divide between two serving bowls. Place diced tomatoes around the edges of each bowl, top with avocado slices and diced grilled chicken. Drizzle bbq sauce over top the whole thing and serve.
