    Thanks so much for this recipe. My husband LOVED this salad over the summer, and it will be fun to make at home. But don’t worry, we will still be coming in for our Noodles fix!

    I love this salad and have tried to re-create it, but it’s the BBQ sauce that seams to make the difference. What brand of sauce do you use or is it from scratch, and if so , can we get that recipe!
