BBQ Lime Chicken Salad

August 10, 2009

I was inspired by the Southwestern flavors of Mesa Grill this past weekend when I created this BBQ Chicken Salad. This throw together kind of salad took me less than 5 minutes to make and was devoured all too quickly. It was light and packed tons of flavor and texture from all the different ingredients in this meal. It was a good way to hit my veggie quota for the day, since I have been lacking in that department lately. I tossed the salad with some Trader Joe’s barbecue sauce and squeezed a little lime juice over the top. I wish I had Cotija cheese instead of Feta, but both tastes fairly similar. Cotija cheese is slightly saltier and used more in Mexican cooking.
