80--- Turkey Chopped Salad

You can add whatever additional items that you see fit to this salad. The more the better! I love chopped salads because they are so easy, fresh, and versatile! I also love a pre-dressed salad.

You can pre-dress any salad, and I often recommend that to clients. You will find that if you place your salad into a plastic bag, add a little bit of dressing and shake it up, that little bit of dressing goes a long way! The salad will be evenly coated, and you will have saved quite a few calories!

Turkey Chopped Salad
Serves 6

1 head romaine lettuce, evenly chopped into small pieces
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
1/2 cup diced black olives
1/2 cup diced pepperoncinis

1/2 cup kernel corn

1/4 tsp garlic powder
