Here’s our take on a traditional chef’s salad, which is anything but light fare when it’s heaped with meats and cheeses.

Our version keeps the satisfaction factor with lean turkey breast and reduced-fat Swiss cheese – and adds plenty of

colorful vegetables to the mix.


6 cups mixed, salad

1 cup shredded carrots

2 tablespoons red onion, chopped

1/4 cup dressing, such as Creamy Dill Ranch Dressing (recipe follows)

10 cherry tomatoes

4 slices roast turkey breast, cut up (3 ounces)

2 slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese, cut up (2 ounces)


1. Toss greens, carrots, onion and dressing in a large bowl until coated. Divide between 2 plates. Arrange

tomatoes, turkey and cheese on top of the salad.
