    ShaGun's Note:

    This salad is incredible! A salad with BBQ chicken, corn, black beans, tomatoes, avocado, scallions, and Cool Ranch Doritios. I get requests for this all the time. It's my favorite main dish salad recipe. It does have to get eaten quickly because the Doritos get soggy after about 20 minutes. I've been using the baked Doritos to make it healthier, but that's optional. I also sometimes toss in jicama or fresh cilantro and basil when I have them. As far as the greens go, I usually use prepackaged salads when they're on sale. This a a recipe adapted from "California Pizza Kitchen Pasta, Salads, Soups, and Sides."

    Units: US | Metric



    1. 1
      Bake or broil chicken breasts (350°F for 30 minutes); cut into bite-size pieces. Toss chicken with BBQ sauce and set aside.
    2. 2
      Toss all salad ingredients together, reserving some of the tomatoes, Doritos and scallions for a garnish for the top. Mix in most of the chicken, reserving some for the top. Top the salad with reserved chicken, tomatoes, Doritos crumbles and scallions.
    3. 3
      Serve immediately as Doritos become soggy after about 20 minutes. To save some time, you can prepare everything ahead of time and combine them just before serving.

      This was really yummy!! I made it just as written, except didn't use tomatoes or avacadoes; just personal preference! But when I make it again, I'll have to add the tomatoes for my daughter!! And, I only crumbled a few Doritos on top to save on fat. Thanks for posting this!!
