It’s not always easy to find simple-to-make Weight Watchers recipes, so I often try to come up with something on my own. For instance, I came up with the following Southwest Salad recipe just for this dressing that I discovered called Litehouse Lite Salsa Ranch. This recipe serves one and has a Weight Watchers PointsPlus value of 7.
I found this dressing in my grocery store, but it is available online at Lighthousefooods.com as well. It’s really tasty – worth coming up with a salad to enjoy it on!
Keep in mind this is really quick. (I didn’t cook my own chicken either – thanks to Perdue Shortcuts.) This would make a great dressing for a lean beef taco salad also.

1/2 cup Perdue Short Cuts southwestern style carved chicken breast (2 PP)

Total PointsPlus Value 7. Serves 1.
In case you missed it, I came up with this Weight Watchers salad recipe using Trader Joe’s Champagne Pear vinaigrette on a feta, pecan strawberry salad. Need something to wash it down with? Try this Weight Watchers fruit smoothie recipe for only 2 PointsPlus!
I’ve been following Weight Watchers online now for 8 weeks and I’ve lost 12 pounds. I’ve maintained and slightly gained a couple of times, but I know this is a plan that I can live with and I am in for the long haul. Slow and steady wins the race!
