This salad has so much variety! Prepare your bowl full of lettuce and other garden-fresh ingredients with Sargento® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut and a dash of chili powder and cumin to create a bed for the savory barbecue glazed chicken to be placed on top. This salad is great for serving at a picnic or party along with ranch dressing.

  • 6 (1-1/2 lbs.) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 pkg. (10 oz.) mixed salad greens
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese - Traditional Cut, divided
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 can (11 oz.) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (2.5 oz.) sliced black olives, drained
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup Ranch salad dressing
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 3/4 tsp. ground cumin
  1. Brush both sides of chicken with barbecue sauce. Place on preheated grill; grill 6 minutes per side or until juices run clear.
  2. Combine lettuce, tomatoes, 3/4 cup cheese, red pepper, corn, beans, olives and green onions in large bowl. Combine dressing, chili powder and cumin in small bowl.
  3. Divide lettuce mixture onto 6 serving plates. Slice chicken; arrange over lettuce. Drizzle salads with dressing and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
