Introduction

This is a makeover of Ruby Tuesdays Carolina Chicken Salad, with a calorie intake at over 1,000, is no way for any American to eat, there has to be a better way.
I chose to add flavorful, healthier ingredients to pack this "3C Salad" with character, class, and crunch. 3C Salad is quickly becoming a family favorite for lunch.

Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 bag Mixed Salad Greens
    1 cup Fresh Spinach
    2 packages Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Southwestern Chicken Breast Strips
    2 cups Tomatoes diced
    2 tbsp Sunkist Almond Accents Ranch Style
    3/4 cup Low Fat Shredded Cheese
    8 slices Applewood Bacon
    1 small Tangerine, sectioned (cut into smaller pieces if necessary)

    Salad dressing as desired.
    Serves 6 nicely, orginally made to serve 5 but realized it has very difficult to split the recipe for smaller families.


Directions

Tear into smaller pieces and toss together the Mixed Salad Greens and Spinach.
Add Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Southwestern Chicken Breast Strips
Top with diced tomatoes.
Sprinkle salad with almonds, cheese and bacon
Place tangerine sections on top.
Serve with dressing of choice on the side.

If you want a warm sensational salad you can microwave your chicken strips before putting them on the salad. (DO NOT MICROWAVE chicken in the package).

The dressing on the side in the picture is Kraft Roasted Red Pepper Italian Dressing with Parmesan.

Serves 6

    This sounded pretty promising, til I ready you have to add salad dressing, which would increase the sodium count even higher. Perhaps if I cut the bacon way back I could make it work for my family. - 11/4/09

    Thank you Shutrbug for checking out The 3 C's-Crunchy Carolina Chicken Salad Recipe. It is wonderful by itself, it is how I perfer it, but realized some people feel a salad is not complete with a dressing, that is why I said dressing on the side.

  • This sounds like a great dish. I am just going to change it up. I am going to cook my own chicken and I will have less sodium. I am also not going to put the ranch style dressing. - 7/24/10
