Healthiest Salads in Restuarants

One of our readers tipped me off to a great story that ran on 6 ABC a few weeks ago-

The Healthiest Restaurant Salads

*Not all of the nutritional info was included, so I copied what they did note.

The testers concluded that the best salads include:

BBQ Chopped Chicken Salad with Barbecue Sauce: 350 calories, 10 grams of fat, and 6 grams of dietary fiber, no dressing needed.
The dressing adds 140 calories and 11 grams of fat.

Asian Sesame Chicken Salad: Testers used about half of the dressing, saving almost 50 calories and 4 grams of fat. 

On the Border
Citrus Chipotle Chicken Salad: 290 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, and 11 grams of dietary fiber (with dressing).

Premium Southwest Salad with Grilled Chicken 320 calories and 9 grams of fat
Adding the Southwest creamy dressing will add 100 calories and 6 more grams of fat.

Burger King
 Tendergrill Chicken Garden Salad without dressing is 270 calories and 9 grams of fat
Adding the ranch dressing adds 120 calories and 10 more grams of fat.

Mandarin Chicken Salad
Chicken Caesar Salad with Grilled Chicken Fillet: 240 calories and 7 grams of fat without any dressing
 If you use two packets of dressing, that jumps up to 490 calories and 32 grams of fat.

Other ways to shave off calories from your salads include skipping toppings such as croutons, noodles, or nuts.

I have never had any of these salads, have you? Any sound particularly good to you?
