WeightWatcher Points - Salads

More Than Your First Cookbook
Salad Chapter
My calculations for WeightWatcher Points

Some of the points will seem high for a portion.  There are two reasons that help account for the higher portion points.  First, the portion are definitely larger than many people really need.  But the second reason is more to blame.  In figuring the nutritional information on each of the salad recipes, all the salad dressing in the recipe was used.  I've actually never used all of the dressing when I make them on the salad.  It may have been better if we had done the salads and the dressings separate.  For the taco, Jane's, ruby red and the shrimp Louie I use about half of the dressing the recipe makes.  I would cut a third of the points if you do the same.

Barry's Healthier Taco Salad - 9 pts.

Bleu Cheese Salad - 11 pts.

Classic Caesar Salad - 5 pts.

Chicken Salad - 5 pts.

Egg Salad - 6 pts.

Greek Salad - 7 pts.

Jane's Salad - 19 pts.

Ruby Red Grapefruit Salad - 14 pts.

Shrimp Louie Salad - 24 pts.

Tuna Salad - 7 pts.
