Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Chicken Salad on Mixed Greens with Strawberries & Almonds
Simple chicken salad with strawberries, mixed greens, crumbled goat cheese, chopped avocado and sliced almonds, in a simple honey & citrus vinaigrette dressing.
Yum. Yum. Yum.
I had this delicious salad with chicken, strawberries and mixed greens for lunch yesterday and just thinking about it still makes me smile.
I was able to concoct it by combining ingredients I had in the fridge and pantry: mixed greens, strawberries, leftover rotisserie chicken, avocado, red onion, goat cheese crumbles, and sliced almonds. (Oh, how I love a well stocked fridge.)
The Skinny on Strawberry Chicken Salad with Mixed Greens
This hearty main dish dinner salad has just 302 calories, *8 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *6 WW Freestyle SmartPoints.
Laced with lean protein, fiber, and healthy fat, it kept me full and satisfied until dinner.
I love salads for lunch and sometimes even for dinner, especially when the weather turns warm, like it’s already doing here in Phoenix.
The key is to never think of salads as “diet food.”
