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
10 cherry tomatoes
4 slices roast turkey breast, cut up (3 ounces)
2 slices reduced-fat Swiss cheese, cut up (2 ounces)

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.
