BBQ Chicken Salad With Chipotle Lime Ranch

If this salad is offered at a restaurant I will order it.  Not that I think I am going with a healthier option but because I LOVE it.  The best part about making it at home is the Greek yogurt dressing.  Now I don't have to feel so guilty about the fat and calories.

2 chicken breasts, cooked and diced
1/3 cup BBQ sauce
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 large avocado, diced
1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
2 small cans olives, sliced
6 cups romaine lettuce, chopped

Directions: Toss chicken in BBQ sauce and set aside. Add lettuce to large salad bowl and the black beans, olives, tomatoes, chicken, and avocado evenly on the salad. Toss with dressing or serve on the side.
