BBQ Chicken Summer Salad

I made THE most delicious salad tonight for dinner...so light and refreshing. PERFECT for a hot day like we had today!

1 bag "Just Lettuce" (it's a Romaine and Iceberg blend) - chopped
1.5 cups monterey jack cheese
1 can whole kernel corn - drained
1 can black beans - drained and rinsed
2 tomatoes - diced
1 bunch green onions - chopped
1 pkg. chicken breasts
Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce
Ranch Dressing
Tortilla Chips
1 Lime - wedged

Grill the chicken breasts, chop into bite sized pieces and toss in BBQ Sauce. Set aside. In a large bowl, toss chopped lettuce, cheese, corn, black beans and green onions. Add just enough ranch dressing to coat salad lightly when tossed.

Plate the salad and then top with chicken, tomatoes and some crushed tortilla chips. Garnish plate with lime wedges. When eating, squirt juice from lime onto the salad.
