2 San Antonio Chicken Salad

, I was introduced to this salad the day one of my best friends got married! I mean seriously, isn't she beautiful????


Ashley's mom made us this delicious and healthy salad the afternoon of the wedding! It is light and perfect for summer! I would serve it with crackers at either a shower or party or by itself as a salad with a meal! For us girls, it makes a lovely lunch or dinner!

4 cups shredded cooked chicken
2 Red Delicious Apples, peeled, cored and copped
1 (15 oz) can red kidney beans, drained
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded queso Chihuahua or Monterey Jack Cheese
1/2 prepared ranch dressing
4 cups torn lettuce leaves
1 (10 oz) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/2 cup store bought spicy or hot peanuts
1 TBSP finely chopped cilantro
1/2 cup prepared barbecue sauce

Combine all the ingredients except the dressing and the barbecue sauce in a large bowl and toss to mix well. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, until chilled! Meanwhile combine the ranch dressing and barbecue sauce in a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate. Serve the salad with the dressing on the side! (add sliced jalapenos for spicy addition!)
