Grilled chicken breast marinated in homemade yogurt ranch dressing, wrapped in bacon and tossed with fresh spinach, avocado, and tomatoes. Drizzle more yogurt ranch dressing for a main meal salad inspired by a California Club sandwich.
This is a low carb, whole food meal with healthy substitutions of low-fat Greek yogurt dressing, no nitrate bacon and skinless chicken breasts.
Make chipotle pepper ranch dressing by adding 1/2 to 1 chipotle pepper and a teaspoon of adobe sauce. Heat it up!
I’m sharing my salad at Fiesta Friday.
