Ingredients

  • 1 large head green-leaf lettuce (about 1 pound) shredded
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 English cucumber, sliced
  • 12 ounces grilled chicken breast, sliced
Croutons:
  • 1 whole-wheat roll (about 2 ounces) preferably day old, cut into 1/2-inch chunks
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Bacon bits:
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3 slices Canadian bacon (3 ounces) finely diced
Dressing:
  • 1/3 cup plain nonfat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped sweet gherkin pickles (1/2-ounce)
  • Salt

Directions

Make croutons:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Toss bread cubes with olive oil, salt and pepper and place on a baking sheet. Bake until croutons are golden and crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove from oven, and allow to cool completely.

Make bacon bits:

Spray a nonstick pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook until crisp, stirring frequently, about 4 to 5 minutes. Allow to cool.

Make dressing:

Combine the yogurt, mayonnaise, ketchup, vinegar and pickles in a bowl and stir to incorporate. Season with salt, to taste.

Toss the lettuce, tomato, onion, and cucumber in a large salad bowl with the dressing. Top with croutons, bacon bits, sliced chicken and serve.
