During the summer my family spends more time (especially when we have visitors) out and about. You can find us enjoying the beach, amusement parks, fairs, outdoor concerts, summer movies, and more. With all of this entertainment comes more spending. By the time the end of the month rolls around, I sometimes find myself stretching my food budget. That’s why I like Budget Friendly Meals: Barbecue Chicken Entrée Salad with Cilantro Ranch Dressing. It’s a refreshing dinner recipe that costs under $20 to make for a family of four.

I like to coupon but I don’t always have the time to. When I need to stretch my food budget around the 1st and 15th of the month I head to Walmart and shop their Rollback deals. On a recent trip I saw a lot of KRAFT products on Rollback. I picked up KRAFT Barbecue Sauce, KRAFT Ranch Dressing, and VELVEETA Shredded Cheese to #RollIntoSavings. With these ingredients I made my Budget Friendly Meals: Barbecue Chicken Entrée Salad with Cilantro Ranch Dressing which is a great summer meal.

This salad is quick & easy to make, delicious, chock-full of nutritious veggies, and filling. So filling that I didn’t hear a peep out of my Marine hubby who often comes home with a big appetite.

 Cook’s Note:

Feel free to use thawed and drained frozen corn in this recipe instead of steamed corn on the cob.

If you don’t want hot chicken on your salad, you can serve it warm or at room-temperature.
