This salad is quick and easy, and packs all the flavor punch of any buffalo chicken salad. I used 98% fat free deli roasted chicken breast meat, making the chicken part of this salad as easy as can be. Just weighed out two ounces on my scale and then chopped it up. You could use any combination of zero point+ vegetables you like...I used sweet red pepper, red onion, tomato, and carrot. I also used full fat blue cheese crumbles...and although I haven't seen it at the store yet ( but I am looking!) , I hear there is a low fat blue cheese that is out now...and you could certainly sub that for the full fat stuff.
I am not going to supply the nutritional stats for this recipe, as most of it is comprised of zero point vegetables, and as far as I am concerned...even in a salad, they stay ZERO! so the only two items that add point value to this salad is the chicken and the cheese...which comes to 5 point+. ( 2 point+ for the chicken and 3 point+ for the cheese.)

This salad made me happy. I felt like I was being bad....because my mouth was so happy with flavor...but it turned out I was being really good!
Have you recently had something that you ate that felt like you were being bad, but were really being good?
