Chicken BLT Salad

Salads make a healthy quick lunch. If you limit the amount of dressing you use and cut down on the bacon bits this salad is also low calorie. (Unfortunately I tend to prefer the higher calorie salads.)
Also the avocados make this salad rich in B vitamins. There have also been studies linking avocado rich diets to a lowering of cholesterol. The mixed greens and the tomatoes provide vitamin C and the spinach provides vitamin A. So enjoy the bacon knowing you are getting a vitamin packed lunch.
  • 4 cups spinach
  • 4 cups mixed greens
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 1/3 cup cooked chicken, cubed
  • 1/4 cup bacon bits
  • bacon ranch dressing

Toss all ingredients except dressing. Lightly drizzle dressing over top of salad or serve in a small dish to the side of salad.
