Wow – I am loving this salad! It has a delicious smoky flavor but it’s not overwhelming and goes great with the tangy sour cream. It’s kind of like an entire BBQ in one bowl stacked with meat, greens, veggies, and cheese!
I used G. Hughes Sugar-Free BBQ sauce, which is sweetened with sucralose but you can also use my homemade keto bbq sauce. It’s a great alternative for regular sauce and only has 1 carb per tablespoon. If you can’t find it, there are several varieties offered at Walmart. In this recipe, I cooked my chicken on the stove, so it can be easily shredded, but you can cook it any way you’d like.
This salad is great to take to a picnic or even save for work.
