chicken tender salad with spicy bbq dressing

Spring and summer are a great time to elevate your salad game. Salads are a great way to get in raw vegetables and add in some quality protein and mix it up with different dressings. This is a simple salad that is packed with flavor. It reminds me of a summer BBQ party. You can make the chicken tender recipe ahead, serve it for dinner one night and for lunch the next day on this salad. You could also make them ahead and freeze them.
