BBQ Chicken Salad

IMG_1209

I am a self proclaimed salad hater… well, I don’t  hate salads but I am definitely the girl that likes her salad loaded with “gems” and pretty much leaves a bowl of tossed around, dressing coated lettuce leaves to be tossed in the compost.  This salad is the excpetion. With a tangy sweet dressing, tender chicken breast and fresh sweet  corn and crisp veggies, I was able to leave an empty bowl this time!
