I’ve taken two very popular dishes, a BLT and Chicken Caesar Salad and combined them into one terrific salad! You’ll love how quickly it comes together because I’m using store bought cooked chicken, a light bottled dressing and Milton’s Multi-Grain Baked Snack Crackers, for the croutons. This main course salad has all the incredible taste sensations of these two dishes but with a fraction of the fat and calories. The skinny for 1 serving, 320 calories, 13 grams of fat, and 8 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. This includes the dressing, crackers and cheese.

    Shopping Tips
    You might be familiar with Milton’s wonderful Multi-Grain bread but did you know they make great snack-size crackers? I’m using their multi-grain but the whole wheat would work too. They’re super tasty and great to use instead of croutons, in any salad. Many supermarkets carry them. Check Milton’s website to find where they’re sold in your area, http://www.miltonsbaking.com/. If you can’t find them, choose a small reduced-fat baked cracker.

    I’ve combed the supermarket shelves looking for one of the leanest regular bacon choices and Oscar Meyer Center Cut Bacon is my favorite, compared to most regular bacon. It’s much lower in fat and calories, 3 slices contain 70 calories and 4.5 grams of fat. Once cooked on paper towels, most of the fat soaks into the paper, not left in the bacon.
