This salad is seriously delicious for only 4 Smart Points!

We’re talking (easy) homemade ranch, BACON, eggs, cucumbers, green onion, tomatoes and cheddar cheese. That’s a lot of goodies for only 4 points.

The best part is that several of the ingredients are 0 points. So feel free to through in some extra cucumber, eggs or tomatoes.

For the homemade ranch, simply mix the ingredients together. It’s so easy! I like to let it chill in the fridge for an hour. 

I love getting a wedge salad when I go out to eat. The only bad thing is when they don’t have a low fat/low calorie dressing. You have to be careful with salad dressing. Sometimes it can have more calories than the salad itself!

I like to keep my dressing on the side and dip each bite. I feel like the dressing lasts longer that way.
