Barbecue Salad

Barbecue Salad

When I saw the theme for the swap this week was lettuce I knew I had to share a Southern summer staple- barbecue salad. It’s a great way to use up leftovers because it doesn’t take much meat and you can use whatever bits of your favorite salad toppers you have left.

Barbecue Salad

Heat the meat and barbecue sauce until hot. Place salad greens on plates. Divide meat among the salads and top with dressing and various toppings.
