BBQ Ranch Salad

This certainly isn’t a healthy salad, but it is good and probably one you can get kids to eat. I put French fries on it. This idea may seem strange, but it is delicious and makes the salad hardier so you don’t leave the table feeling hungry. The best part about salads in my opinion is the fact that they are completely customizable to your tastes.

This recipe is for 4 salads, but it is obviously easy to just create the number you need. The amount on each ingredient is just a suggestion.

Quick tip: If you or your kids like chicken nuggets you can always use those in place of the chicken breasts. You can also use a veggie based chicken substitute, like morning star.


2 heads of Romaine Lettuce chopped
2 large Chicken Breasts
½ bag French Fries baked
½ pint Grape Tomatoes halved
1 can of Corn
1 cup Cheddar Cheese chopped
1 cup BBQ Sauce
1 cup Ranch dressing
Salt and Pepper
Olive Oil


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Drizzle the chicken breasts with olive oil, add salt and pepper and bake for 15-20 min. When they are done cooking chopped them into bite-sized pieces. Bake fries according to instructions on the bag. While these are baking put the rest of the salad together so you can put the hot fries right on top to serve. You can combine the BBQ and Ranch if you want before putting it on the salad or you can just put both on separately.
