Barbecue "Chicken" Salad

Use your fresh produce to make this family favorite!

It's a copy-cat of a salad that Applebee's used to serve!

There is my original recipe, with animal-free and sugar-free options!

Here is what you'll need!

Barbecue "Chicken" Salad

Or use meatless chicken pieces (Beyond Chicken is great!)
2 small heads leaf lettuce, such as Romaine, chopped
2 cucumbers, sliced, quartered
2 avocados, chopped
3-4 stalks green onion, sliced
2-3 c frozen corn
1 can black beans, drained
1/3 c chopped dates
1/3 c vinegar, any kind, we use red wine or rice wine or apple cider, and I bet plain would work too!
1/3 c barbecue sauce, omit for sugar-free dish, or find a nice WFPB recipe like My Whole Food Life Melissa's

Chop and combine ingredients, and enjoy!

We make this salad without chicken or cheese, and it's super yummy!  You could too! WHY bother?  READ HERE!

Dates and vinegar are a healthy alternative to barbecue sauce but it's not the same taste. It DOES give the salad a nice sweet taste, and allows you to avoid refined sugar :)

Read about where we got all but the corn and avocados from HERE! (CSA rules!)
