I am a big fan of salads and created one recently that is now my new favorite salad. It's super easy and cheap to make and you can play around with the ingredients, taking stuff out or adding new ones in. It all has to do with your personal taste! Here are the basics:

Serves two people:

2 large boneless, skinless breasts of chicken
1 head of iceberg lettuce (or whatever kind of lettuce you prefer)
1 can of corn
1 can of black beans
1 red pepper
1 bunch of cilantro
1 large red tomato
1 green pepper
1 red onion
1 package of cheese, preferably cheddar or monteray jack
1/2 cup of ranch dressing
1/2 cup of BBQ sauce
A bit of salt n' pepper

It goes like this:

Chop up your veggies. Drain the black beans and corn and mix 'em in w/ the veggies. Mix together BBQ sauce and ranch dressing and refrigerate until your chicken is done. Grill up your chicken breast. When your chicken is grilled to perfection, slice into strips. Finely chop your cilantro. Make a nice bed of lettuce on two large plates. Lay veggie mixture on top of the lettuce by the heaping spoonful. Sprinkle cheese, lots of cilantro, and a bit of salt n' pepper over it. Lay chicken strips on top and smother in BBQ ranch dressing. It is ADDICTIVE.

My brother is a chef at a Southwestern style restraunt in Santa Fe and they make one almost exactly like that but they added chipotles too.  I love it.

So i went to the grocery store this evening and i couldnt keep this salad out of my mind, so, i made it for dinner.  I left out a few veggies just cus they were looking pretty poor in the store. 
Chainsaw, it is definitely delicious! My tummy thanks you. I really like the sauce and cilantro, it all comes together very well.  Thank you for the great recipe!

Glad you enjoyed it! I also thought of trying to find little tortilla strips to top it with. Does anyone know where I can find them or how I can make them?

u could probably take tortilla's cut them into strips and bake them in the oven(I've seen a recipe before,your probably fine at 350 as long as you watch them)you can also sprinkle them with chili powder or anyother spice before baking.
p.s-This recipe rocks!love it!!!!I tinhk I'll have to try it tonight cause my brother is trying to lose some wait for football and we were planning on having salad anyway.We'll just have to go easy on the dressing.

I'm making this tonight sans pepper, the BF hates them.  I'm also going to sautee the chicken in some hot sauce for a hot wings taste.
