I've tried a few different recipes for BBQ chicken salad, this one comes from "The Gathering of Friends" cookbook and is for sure my favorite. The sauce on the chicken along with the salsa ranch make it!

2 heads hearts of romaine lettuce or 1 bag of hearts of romaine
2 c Monterey Jack cheese
1 c frozen young white corn
1 c black beans
4 green onions
2 ripe tomatoes
2 c tortilla strips
3 c chopped barbeque chicken (see recipe below)

Clean and shred lettuce. Chill. Dice tomatoes and onions, set aside. Combine frozen corn and black beans. Fold in Jack cheese and toss with lettuce, diced tomatoes and onions. Top with barbecue chicken and tortilla strips. Finish with Salsa Ranch dressing just before serving.
