Southern Fried Chicken Salad

I love salads in warm weather. This salad has protein, vegetables and dairy. It’s a meal in a bowl!  This makes a very large salad. Perfect to feed a crowd, potluck or family. If you do not add the dressing, it should stay fresh for several days. You can use my homemade Parmesan Ranch dressing, or use your favorite dressing. 


2 bags of Hearts of Romaine lettuce

2 Fried chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces, I bought mine at the deli

3 Scallions, cut in pieces

4 Strips of Bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled

3 Hard boiled eggs, cut into wedges

1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese

1 cup Celery, diced

Pralines, optional

Put lettuce in a large salad bowl. Add the remaining ingredients.  Toss with the dressing below or use your favorite dressing. Enjoy!
Homemade Parmesan Ranch Dressing


1 cup Buttermilk

1/2 cup Sour cream

1 Tablespoon of chopped chives, fresh is best

1 Tablespoon of parsley, I used dry

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, the kind you shake 

1/2 teaspoon Dill, dry

1/4 teaspoon Onion powder

1/4 teaspoon Garlic powder

1/8 teaspoon Salt, taste after adding Parmesan cheese, you may not want any or you may want more

1/8 teaspoon Pepper, cracked fresh if possible


In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The dressing can be made ahead of time and it’s better the next day.
