I’m on a salad kick for lunch these days for 2 reasons: first, there’s usually left over grilled chicken in the fridge that has to be eaten and second, I love strawberries in salads. One of my favorite salads are ones that have fresh fruit, nuts, cheese and a sweet dressing… which as I type that sounds more like a fancy cheese plate that should be enjoyed with a good glass of wine than a lunch salad. Since I love this salad so much and didn’t want to give it up (nuts are protein you know) I opted for a way to make it “skinnier.”

I started with some baby kale and romaine leaves, topped it with toasted pecans, sliced strawberries, thinly sliced red onion, and some reduced-fat gorgonzola cheese. Then I made a skinny version of poppy seed dressing. It’s absolutely delicious and one of my new favorites.
