Meatless Dinner Salad with Honey BBQ Dressing 5 5 0

Salads are a very popular thing in our household come the summer season. Since they don't require any heat to make, I can stay cool while making dinner. Since lettuce is such a blank canvas, it can be fun to play around with toppings. This recipe is my take on a BBQ chicken salad without the fat-heavy ranch and tortilla chips. To be quite honest I was out of chicken so it turned into a meatless dish real fast. Pinto beans are a great protein swap for chicken and the tang of the honey BBQ dressing pairs nicely with the sweetness of the corn.
