So I purchased one of those new salads from Lean Cuisine...it was on sale & I gave in...I got the southwest one...it was okay but for the cost you could pretty much buy all the stuff and make like 5 salads...so that's just what I did!
1/2c black beans
Handful of chopped peppers (I always have some diced and ready to go in the freezer)
4oz Chicken Breast (my husband grilled some breasts with a little bbq sauce on them so I chopped that up)
1 1/2tbsp Crispy Onions
I take all the veggies & saute in a pan, add the chicken & pour over lettuce!
This is a side by side comparison of the 2 salads. One on the left is the Lean Cuisine and the one on the right is my version.

Although the LC is lower in calories, my version has less sodium, less fat and almost double the protien! And it was hella delicious!
