Grilled Chicken BLT Salad :: BJ's Brewhouse Copycat Recipe

Peter and I are late night regulars once a week at our favorite restaurant BJ's Brewhouse. It's a blessing to have a 17 year old son who can babysit! We put the kids to bed and sneak out for a late night date night.

Tip: DON'T stop dating your spouse! I can't recommend it enough to make date nights a priority - even if you have to hire a babysitter.

Since it's late, we don't need to spend the money and eat a whole meal. Tip: Secret way to make date nights affordable - go late when you're not starving and just split something! 

We LOVE to get a BJ's BLT salad. The spicy and sweet vinaigrette is so so good! Tonight we decided to make our own copycat version at home and added sliced grilled chicken to make into a more hearty dish. It turned out just like BJ's version if I dare say so myself!

Salad Ingredients

Grilled Chicken - sliced
Baby Spinach
Tomatoes - chopped
Bacon - cooked and crumbled
Hard Boiled Egg - chopped
Blue Cheese Crumbles

Honey Siracha Vinaigrette

Blend together...

1/3 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 Tablespoon Siracha
1/2 Teaspoon Lemon Juice
1 Garlic Clove

It's pretty self explanatory. Assemble the salad, drizzle with dressing, and enjoy!

This is literally our new favorite salad.
