BBQ Chicken Salad w/Cilantro Ranch Dressing

My husband absolutely loves this salad. The dressing is the best part, you've got to make the homemade Hidden Valley Ranch from the packet, it's the only way to go. I do highly recommend cooking the chicken in the crockpot with KC Masterpiece Original sauce too. Delicious!

hearts of romaine
1 can corn
1 can black beans
15 grape tomatoes, halved
2-3 cooked chicken breasts, cubed or shredded
favorite BBQ sauce (I use KC Masterpiece Original)
mozzarella cheese

1 packet prepared Hidden Valley Ranch dressing (1 cup mayo/ 1 cup milk)
½ bunch chopped cilantro
1 clove garlic, minced
juice of 1 lime, or 2 Tbsp.

Place lettuce in a serving bowl. Layer with corn, black beans, and tomatoes. Mix cooked chicken in BBQ sauce and top over salad. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over top.
Place ranch dressing, cilantro, lime juice and minced garlic in a blender or food processor and mix well. Drizzle over salad.
