This salad is a knock off of Red Robin's BBQ chicken salad. Red Robin is one of our family's favorite places to eat out - my husband LOVES the bottomless fries. But, we can't eat there very often, so I like to make this salad occasionally at home. It is really tasty and very close to the original - it would probably be a dead ringer if I found out what BBQ sauce they use. You can find my recipe here.
