Woohoo! HG has some AWESOME salad ideas for you...   


Not too long ago, we whipped up a super Salad Bar Survival Guide chock-full of salady facts. Inspired by the delicious list, we came up with some crave-worthy salad recipe equations, without adding lots of calories or subtracting any flavor. Whether you're at your local salad joint or rummaging through the fridge and pantry, use these ideas to keep from getting caught in a boring salad rut!
Super Duper Southwest Salad

(Entire salad: Approx. 275 calories, 4.5g fat, 800mg sodium, 35g carbs, 8g fiber, 13g sugars, 30g protein = 5 Points)

3 cups romaine lettuce + 1/2 cup tomatoes + 1/2 cup red pepper strips + 1/4 cup corn niblets + 1/4 cup black beans + 1/2 cup plain chunk-style chicken + 2 tbsp. salsa + 2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

This salad will satisfy your craving for a giant honkin' Mexican-inspired meal. And feel free to zazzle it up a little more with some shredded fat-free cheese and/or some crushed baked tortilla chips. Your nutritionals will vary, of course, but this one's so low-cal that even with the extra goodies, it'll still clock in with staggeringly low stats.
California Veggie Heaven

(Entire salad: Approx. 260 calories, 6.5g fat, 1,050mg sodium, 40g carbs, 7.5g fiber, 17g sugars, 11g protein = 5 Points)

3 cups mixed baby greens + 1/2 cup cucumbers + 1/2 cup mushrooms + 1/2 cup alfalfa sprouts + 1/4 cup sweet peppers + 1/4 cup garbanzo beans + 1 tbsp. raisins + 2 tbsp. feta cheese + 1 tsp. sunflower seeds + 2 tbsp. fat-free honey mustard dressing

The combo of veggies, feta, raisins, sunflower seeds and more makes this a decadent treat that tastes super-high-cal but isn't. Hate sprouts? Feel free to garnish with a handful of shredded carrots, instead (but please, don't actually use your hand if you're at a salad bar)! Mmmmmm!
Cobby-licious Salad Supreme

(Entire salad: Approx. 290 calories, 8g fat, 800mg sodium, 30g carbs, 8g fiber, 9g sugars, 24g protein = 6 Points)

3 cups romaine lettuce + 1/2 cup tomatoes + 1/2 cup cucumbers + 1/4 cup chopped eggs + 2 tbsp. imitation bacon bits + 1/4 cup red kidney beans + 1/4 cup plain chunk-style chicken + 2 tbsp. fat-free blue cheese dressing

This Cobb-inspired salad ROCKS! With eggs, bacon bits and blue cheese flavor in every bite, it's hard to believe that this one averages under 300 calories, but it does. Fat-Saving Tip: Use only egg whites and no yolks, and you'll shave 3.5 fat grams and 1 Point off this salad's total tally. Yay!
DRESSING ALERT!

We're still FLIPPING over Wish-Bone's entire array of Salad Spritzer vinaigrettes. Now that there are SEVEN flavors in the line, there's definitely one to satisfy whatever craving you may have. Among our favorites are the Asian Silk (which is the BEST thing EVER for homemade Asian chicken salads) and the Caesar Delight (which can save you hundreds of calories and dozens of fat grams in your Caesar salad)! These spritzable dressings have just 1 - 2 calories per spray. Insane!
