Power Salad

This salad is a healthy spin on the Chef’s salad (traditionally full of fat).  Bonus – no cooking required.  This recipes makes 2 servings – but it’s easy to make more.  And if you have other veggies on hand, throw them in the salad, too.

What you’ll need:

  • 6 cups mixed greens
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 tablespoons chopped red onion
  • 1/4 cup light dressing (look for minimal ingredients and vinaigrettes are usually lower in saturated fats)
  • 10 cherry tomatoes
  • 4 slices roasted turkey breast, sliced (3 ounces)
  • 2 slices Swiss cheese, sliced (2 ounces)

What you’ll do:

  • Toss the greens, carrots, red onion and dressing together in a large bowl.
  • Divide between two plates.
  • Top each with equal amounts of the tomatoes, turkey and cheese.
