“While on a calorie-counting quest, I put together this chicken salad 'loaded' with celery, onion, and shredded carrots (which contain very little calories). The almonds give it a little extra crunch, and the cranberries are just sweet goodness :) I listed 'creamy Italian dressing'. For this, I made Creamy Italian Dressing #34649 and added 1 tbsp of honey mustard, using 2 tbsp of this mixture in my salad.”
