Not sure what made me create this colorful, fiber rich, salad but I love, love, love, it. So yummy, I’ve made it several days in a row…You might too! It’s chock full of great, skinny, satisfying ingredients. It not only contains chopped romaine lettuce instead of iceberg and lean bacon, it also has chopped bell peppers, black beans, fresh corn cut off the cob and crunchy crushed reduced-fat tortilla chips. In addition it’s tossed it in a yummy reduced-fat cilantro dressing. The skinny for 1 serving is 283 calories, 7.9g fat, 9 grams of fiber and 8 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. If made with all regular ingredients, 1 serving has 616 calories and 45 grams of fat!
