  1. Combine dressing ingredients; set aside.
  2. Place lettuce in serving bowl, sprinkle with remaining salad ingredients.
  3. At serving time, drizzle salad with dressing, toss and serve.
  4. Cooking time is for the eggs (bring to a boil, boil 3 minutes, turn off & let sit in hot water for 11 minutes, pour off hot water, cover with ice-water, begin peeling) and bacon (fry & drain on paper towels) and chicken (cover breast meat with half water & cooking sherry, simmer until meat is just barely pink, remove from heat, drain & cut) -- do these in an overlapping style, and you'll be done in no time!

Yummy blend of flavors! Lots of great veggies and protein, and the wonderful zip from the dressing. I used homemade BBQ sauce and fat free mayo - very unique touch! Thanks for sharing!

I really liked the dressing. I used Miracle Whip (light) instead of mayo and it still tasted good. I added some cucumbers from the garden and thought it was a nice addition. Thanks!

Fantastic! I went on a 'zaar search for a lettuce and chicken salad and found this winner! I would have never thought of adding BBQ sauce to make a dressing, and this intriqued me. I already had my chicken cooked, so I didn't use the sherry to simmer. I added some grated cheddar over the top. Every bite was wonderful! Thanks Debber!
