Ingredients

Lemon-Dijon Dressing

  • 1/4
    cup reduced-fat mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 2
    tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2
    teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1
    clove garlic, finely chopped

Salad

  • 4
    cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 2
    cups shredded cooked chicken breasts
  • 1/4
    cup sliced drained sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 1
    hard-cooked egg, chopped
  • 2
    medium green onions, sliced (2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4
    cup shredded Parmesan cheese, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    In small bowl, beat all dressing ingredients with wire whisk until well blended.
  • 2
    On individual serving plates, arrange lettuce, chicken, tomatoes and egg. Spoon dressing over top. Sprinkle with onions and cheese.

  • Slash the fat to just 4 grams per serving by using fat-free mayonnaise instead of reduced-fat.
  • To shred romaine lettuce, after washing and drying leaves, stack a pile of leaves on a cutting board. With a sharp knife, cut leaves crosswise into thin strips. Measure 4 cups lightly packed shreds for this salad.
