Copycat Cheesecake Factory BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad Recipe

With summer coming up, everyone will be starting to look for yummy salads that don’t require heating up the kitchen. Of course here in Florida, we are already having 90 degree days so these are perfect. One of my favorites is Cheesecake Factory’s BBQ Ranch Chicken Salad. The best part about our copycat recipe is that it uses a rotisserie chicken. We skipped the onion rings on this one but if you want to add them, check out our Air Fryer Onion Rings to add to it.
