How to make BBQ Ranch Dressing

I like to mix together 1:3 ratio of bbq sauce to ranch. So if I do 1 cup of ranch dressing I add 1/3 cup of bbq sauce. This seems to be the perfect amount to put in my salad but it is super easy to make more if you need it!

How to serve Chopped BBQ pulled pork salad?

You can serve it how it is in the photos or you can mix it all together! My husband always likes to evenly placed the ingredients instead of doing them in sections like I do!

You can also do a salad or baked potato bar with these toppings.

Can you make this ahead of time?

Absolutely! I like to use left over pulled pork for this! Then you can prep the ingredients and chop them so you have them in your fridge ready to go when you are ready to serve.

You can also use these as a meal prep and eat throughout the week. Store the ingredients chopped and ready in airtight containers and then each day assemble your salad and you have a yummy salad in minutes!
