It is fair to say, being a FatLad, salad wouldn’t be my first place to go when looking for a healthy meal. Yet I come back time and time again, to my Chicken Caesar Salad.

Why? Well it was something I first tried in a restaurant one day, because I was sick of the same old chicken dinners. Caesar Salad, although not very new , was new to me, and what a revelation it was!

So now I have made my own, semi-healthy version, using yogurt instead of mayo, in a bid to try and cut down the calories, but keep the taste.

So I guess Salad is my friend after all. —FatLadFood

  12. Toast both slices of bread in the oven, so they are toasted right through.
  13. Chop the eggs and toast and add to the salad bowl.
  14. Chop up the chicken and bacon, and add to the salad bowl.
  15. Drizzle all of the dressing over the salad, and then combine thoroughly.
