3 Southwest Cobb Salad

In honor of Mother's Day, I'm posting this Southwest Cobb Salad that I found on Keeping Up with the Joneses. As I have said before, my mom is the healthiest eater in the world and the most disciplined. (literally, she has not had one dessert in my entire lifetime). So, this is probably the only thing she would eat on my "list" of recipes to blog about. . . BUT if she were ordering this salad at a restaurant, she would cut the cheddar cheese and the bacon and have oil and vinegar in the side. And that is why she is so tiny! :-) 
Happy Mother's Day, Mom! I love you!
Nate and I on the other hand had our salads with the everything piled on top! 

Happy Mother's Day to veteran moms, new moms, expecting moms, moms waiting for their children through the adoption process, AND moms to furry children! 
Have a lovely Sunday celebrating YOU! :-)
1  large head romaine lettuce, shredded
1  pound  chopped smoked chicken (or 1 rotisserie chicken)
1  cup  (4 oz.) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
3  large tomatoes, seeded and diced
2  large avocados
1  tablespoon  fresh lemon juice
1  bunch green onions, sliced
1  (4-oz.) package crumbled blue cheese
6  bacon slices, cooked and crumbled
1 package buttermilk ranch dressing (and ingredients called for on packet) (I just used regular Ranch Dressing)
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
Prepare buttermilk ranch dressing according to package directions. Stir in barbecue sauce and refrigerate until ready to use.
Layer first 4 ingredients on a large serving platter.
Peel and chop avocados; toss with lemon juice.
Layer avocado, green onions, crumbled blue cheese, and crumbled bacon over salad. Serve immediately, or cover and chill up to 8 hours. Serve with Barbecue-Ranch Dressing.
