Carolina BBQ Salad

This is a quick, easy, well-loved and filling recipe around here.  It’s also very filling, – a nice bridge between old-american cuisine and the new healthier variety.  I believe in building bridges between old and new!

Carolina BBQ Salad

While carolina barbecue typically does NOT include traditional barbecue sauce, the salad dressing in this recipe is similar to the sauce that most pulled bbq is served with in Carolina.  Throw it together in minutes and enjoy!

Ingredients – Salad

  1. Rotisserie Chicken (or other protein source that you like with bbq sauce)
  2. Greens (your choice, spinach, kale, chard, romaine, green leaf lettuce etc)
  3. Honey BBQ sauce (the bbq sauce is not essential if you aren’t a fan)
  4. Celery
  5. Red Bell Pepper
  6. Apple
  7. Cheddar Cheese (optional)



  1. 2 parts or      1c.   Olive Oil
  2. 3 parts or  1.5c.   Apple Cider Vinegar (love Brag!)
  3. 1 part   or    .5c.   Honey (also could use agave, sugar, etc)


Knife, cutting board OR my favorite – MANDOLIN (pictured below and ideal for fast slicing!)
