    I found this recipe on a low-carb website, and it's become a lifesaver. I usually make this up the night before and take it in to work for a great lunch.

      An excellent light salad with lots of flavor. The dressing was wonderful, we loved the lemon/herb combination. We had this salad as a main dish, I added some large home made garlic croutons. The only thing I did different was that I used Romaine lettuce, because that was what I had in the fridge. I might use pine nuts next time instead of the almonds.

      This was truly delicious. I didn't have basil, so I added basil olive oil. I was initially concerned that it was going to be way too tart with all the lemon juice, but it was healthy, delicious, tasty and filling. I used a pre prepared lettuce mix, and used turkey instead of chicken. Definitely will be making this again! Thanks Mirj! (Reviewed for Spring PAC 2007)
