Chipotle BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad

I’ve got two really great reasons why I made this flavor packed salad AND you’re in luck! Because I am going to tell you both of them 😉

Reason One: For the last two weeks I have been in airplanes, long distance car rides, hotels and ate far too much restaurant food. And while I loved every minute of it my body needs a little bit of a reset. Whenever I come back from trips my body CRAVES all things green. I don’t mean lettuce on my in n out either. I usually feel like I should eat a bucket of spinach for dinner once I get off an airplane. But I suppose a YOLO is always in order while traveling. I’m trying to get better, I promise. 

Reason Two: This salad is perfect for Father’s Day tomorrow! Seriously when I think of father’s day I think of BBQ’s, pool parties, and picnics. Pretty much all things outdoorsy and all things summery! Unfortunately I had to send my Dad a Yetti coffee mug and a note for Father’s Day because we will not be in the same state on Sunday. But if we were, a get together surrounded by good food and good family would be ideal. If you’re looking for a fun dish to bring to a get together tomorrow try this Chipotle BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad. The base of my salad is made with Taylor Farm’s  BBQ Ranch Salad Kit. I love putting my own twist on salad kits like this. It makes my life so much easier and instantly turns the basics into a dish that is your own. 

I loaded the Taylor Farm’s kit with a grilled BBQ chipotle chicken recipe, grilled corn and creamy avocado slices. Something about having a big healthy salad for lunch makes me feel so energized the rest of the day.
