A Shower for My Besty Bride to Be...and a healthy BBQ Chicken Salad Recipe

So, one of my best friends gets married this Friday. I am so excited for her. I love her. I love her fiance. I love the whole thing. It's so great. One of those weddings where you know it's going to be a good time.
 I am one of her bridesmaids, and we threw a shower for her last night. Good times people. Good times.
Lots of fun people.
 
 Some great gifts. 
 And of course, some good eats too!
 I made a fruit salsa with baked cinnamon chips that I haven't ever made before, that turned out to be quite a hit...recipe to come for that one. I also made one of my favorite Southwestern bbq Chicken Salads. It's super healthy...don't tell anyone. ;)
Benita found the cutest lil' mini cans of Diet Coke, which just happen to be Roxy's favorite beverage. We were happy to oblige. 
It was so great to get to hang out together for the night, and I am SO excited for you Roxies!! You will be a BEAUTIFUL bride! 


This BBQ Chicken Salad is SO easy to throw together, and it is really tasty.

Healthy Southwestern BBQ Chicken Salad

Ingredients:
1 head of romaine lettuce chopped
1 head of green leaf lettuce chopped
1 small can of sweet corn
1 can of black beans rinsed and drained
2 chicken breasts cooked with bbq sauce (I cooked mine in a pan, but you could easily grill them)
Extra bbq sauce if needed
2 Roma tomatoes diced
1 avocado sliced

1-2 TBS of fat free ranch (I used Low Fat Southwestern Avocado Ranch that is available at Smiths. It is the Kroger brand and it is very tasty.)
 Arrange your lettuce on a tray or in your serving dish, and top with beans, corn, tomatoes, and diced chicken. Be sure that your chicken has enough BBQ sauce on it to give the salad some BBQ flavor. Place avocado slices around the top, and drizzle with your ranch dressing. Done. Tell me that wasn't the easiest thing ever?
 What is your favorite "throw together" salad? I love anything with a little mexican flare to it. Costco's Mango Salsa is one of my favorite salad dressings!

My favorite salad dressings are Waldens Farms (I think thats the name). I get it at Sprouts but it has pretty much 0 everything.
