Figure Friendly Friday: Easy Chef Salad

What would y'all think about another blogger linky party?

There's wonderful ones out there and I link to most of them.

But...

I really would like to have a place where I can see a compilation of delicious, figure friendly recipes.

Here's the "rules":
This linky party will be for recipes that come in under 500 calories.  Recipes or methods from desserts to soups and everything in between.  However, if your recipe does not fit the 500 calorie goal, I'll have to delete it.  There are a couple of free calorie counters, but I really like sparkrecipes.com.  Please list the caloriees per serving somewhere in the recipe for everyone to see.  Also, please link back to Family Stamping and FOOD! and be sure to visit the other participants.
I'm hoping for a successful linky party so let your friends know!

Here's my first Figure Friendly Friday submission...


Easy Chef Salad
2 cups Romaine lettuce, chopped
2 oz deli turkey thinly sliced (enough to equal 80 calories)
1/2 Roma tomato, sliced
1 hard boiled egg, sliced
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup sliced cucumber

Arrange everything over the top of the lettuce and drizzle with the balsamic vinaigrette.

Balsamic Vinaigrette:
1 tsp spicy brown mustard
1 Tbsp Balsamic vinegar (make sure you check the calories on these...)
1/2 Tbsp honey
salt
pepper

Whisk everything together and drizzle over the top of the salad.  This makes one serving for lunch or dinner. 

266 Calories, 7 fat gr, 23 protein, 21 carbs

Round out the meal with a small apple and crackers.
