What makes this Skinny BBQ so good?

I’m a huge salad person. I could literally live off salads-especially this one- drizzled with sugar free BBQ sauce and my Easy Skinny Ranch Dressing.

The combination of the two really make this salad mouth watering delicious! 

What I love about salads is being able to switch up the ingredients that are used, depending on what I have available.

What can I add to this BBQ Chicken Salad?
