Been craving this ever since first-cousin-once-removed Steph posted about it. SO flavorful and yummy.

BBQ Chicken Salad

1 large bag romaine lettuce
1 cup frozen white corn, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans - drain & rinse
2 cups pepper jack cheese - coursely grated
3 medium tomatoes - diced
2 avocados - diced
juice of 1/2 lime - drizzle over avocado

1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup Best Foods™ mayonnaise
1/2 package Hidden Valley™ ranch dressing mix

2 lbs cooked, shredded chicken
1/2 cup barbecue sauce (Sweet Baby Ray's or Trader Joe's Bold and Smoky are our picks)

Make ranch dressing, chill. Toss chicken with barbecue sauce.
On a large platter, layer lettuce, corn, black beans, cheese and tomatoes. Top with warm barbecued chicken and avocadoes. Serve immediately.
